Welcome back Colleen Chesebro, to the land of writing. We missed your poetry challenges while you were busy uprooting your life and moving to a new state.
This week’s Poetry Challenge invites us to choose a form of poetry to write in and use synonyms only for the words ‘Beginning’ and ‘Consume’. I’ve chosen to write a double, backwards, Etheree.
The Truth Will Set You Free
It has been said – the truth will set us free
It hides in plain sight in silent voice
Our eyes divulge the unspoken
Peeking out behind our tears
Burning deep in our souls
Distorted by lies
Disguised in hate
Etched in hearts
Light not dark
Guides us to truth
Beckons ears to listen
No longer time for silence
Time to evolve and comprehend
Silence and hatred won’t save the world
Take heed, lest we’re devoured by untruth
