National Poetry Writing Month: Truth

I just found out yesterday that April is National Poetry Writing Month. So even though it’s already April 16th, cheers to 14 more days of poetry. I will share some of my old poems and try to write some new ones! This was one of the first poems I wrote when I was in high school:

Truth

Bent, misused,
Twisted and abused,
Often shaded by lies.
Can’t be changed
or rearranged,
but can be seen within your eyes.
It loves to be heard,
This meaningful word,
So let it live before it dies.
