Truth’s rightful face
Twisted to a make a weapon for fools
perspective is not a collective entity
eventually will we see
that truth is a hydra
a multi faced dragon
but the only way to have justice
is to discover the rightful face
in the echoes of sanity
we will see the truth displayed.

Imprisoned but free
You should give in, and say me.
By Cathy Hendrick
Truth is as fragile as the gift of a new life,
It can be taken away or nurtured to shine bright,
Twisted for evil deeds like deception and greed,
Or left to its own devices in the hope it’ll succeed,
It’s set people free and helped better many persons,
It’s crippled lives and cast aspersions
Over palatable lies
It can raise your head proud or can cause you to be aloof,
But if you don’t treat it right the real victim is the truth
By Ginge/Marcus Harrowell
Should I speak the truth to you
And watch your smile fade?
Replace it with confusion
A hateful honest trade?
Must your eyes be always open
To the world outside?
Disabused of fantasies
And not allowed to hide?
Do you deserve the harshness
Of reminders day on day
That things aren’t all as you believe
And the past must slip away?
Should I say your husband’s dead
And I’m not your sister Ruth
I’m someone paid to care for you?
No – I’ll protect you from that truth.
Because you think you’re going home
To fifty years ago
So I won’t crush with honesty
The happiness you know.
