Courage And Truth

Rating: 4.8


A brewing storm
A darkening sky
A deep rumble from the earth's crust
Earth and sea move
They cannot forestall me
To seek for the truth.

The imminent danger to life
The 44 magnum aimed towards my head
The samurai sword pointed at my heart
The smell of death
They could never, never silence me
To speak for the truth.

The evils
The terrorists
The bullies
The snakes
They cannot cripple me
To stand for the truth.

Courage is with me
When I seek for the truth
When I speak for the truth
When I stand for the truth.

The truth is food for the soul, the driver of love and the path to immortality. Those who are brave are fighting. Who is fighting for the truth can get all this. Brave poem.

I am proud of you, Rose Marie! Sticking to truth at all costs.... is a quality rarely found in the present times. Even though some wish to adhere to truth, they are afraid of the consequences. So they either keep mum or side with those who deviate from the path of truth! One needs a lot of courage to say the truth. Nobody can subdue your indomitable spirit! Beautiful poem highlighting the need to uphold truth in a world of lies, sham and deceit! A sure 10
