Treasure Island

Theresa Ann Moore

(1940 / Michigan, U.S.A.)

Who We Are


Honesty is a way of accepting
Who and what we are
Not to say that the moment
Can’t be misconstrued from afar

Honesty exposes deceptions
Expanding explanations
Truth is not always
Free of complications

Often unconfirmed events
Can become rearranged
Facts are scrutinized
As knowledge is claimed

An open declaration
Can lift the soul
Enabling an identity
To become accepting and whole
