Unadorned Truth - Poem by Toney Brooks

The splendor of nakedness

Truth is like a beaker of unarmed spring water
Truth refreshes
Truth vitalizes
Truth liberates

A half-full beaker of truth
Is like a flowing tributary of mistrust
Is like a fearful lake of drowned love
Is like a trickle of intravenous venom

A beaker of fortified untruth
Is like ravenous cancer
Is like truth incarcerated
Is like fangs without the venom

Unadorned truth is the splendor of nakedness
