Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Challenge – Synonyms Only – Beginning and Consume

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

Speak now


Not lost

Light not dark

Guides us to truth

The awakening

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
