The Truth



~~~

Nobody thought it ever could

But we have been wrong before

Like the forest full of trees

It has become so very obscure

~~~

When it is bent by all we hear

The repeated lies and fallacies

Where is the truth we hold dear

When ours seem to never agree

~~~

We find our tribe and listen well

To the words that feed our own

And there under rhetoric spell

Truth becomes the lesser known

~~~

We build our own realities

Hand pick what we believe

Surround ourselves in sycophants

Unwilling the truth to see

~~~

So, there it died a mournful death

Where nothing requires proof

And we have laid to final rest

That thing we called the truth

~~~

    These words are a wake up call for sure. Lovely work Brad. Sorry to be behind in reading I have been writing and submitting and gotten behind reading great work like this. Hope all is well. Sending you tons of love and hugs. ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿค—โค๏ธJoni

      No worries dear Jonikins! Submitting is its own hard work. I appreciate your support always!

        You write such beautiful poetry and so often you make it look easy but it isnโ€™t for me. I love writing but it takes many hours for me to write something I am happy with and then I revisit it several times before I publish. You probably do the same but are more disciplined than I am. Sending lots of love and appreciation for all the beautiful reads yesterday. All so timely and so true. Have a blessed and peaceful day. Keep the news off over the weekend if at all possible. Also I do hope you have all your work together in case you decide to publish a book of your many pieces. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’•โค๏ธ

        Thanks Jonikins! I do have all my works together for my sister tp publish upon my demise. We have a running bet on who goes first. Maybe it will happen when I am still around. Who knows? Thanks for all the love and support. Returning it all to you with gratitude! ๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ™

        Your sister is so sweet like my best friend Janette. Loyal and so loving her heart. Your work should be published. I am glad you left it to someone I did that too. My daughter is connected and anything not published will belong to her it is in our will. Sending more love back my friend. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’•โค๏ธ love ya Jonikins

    well said, Brad. It seems like it is getting harder and harder to know what is the truth…

    I couldn’t agree more. People hear what they want to hear and call it the truth.
