Knowing the Truth ~ etheree

Knowing the Truth

Serious, our many differences.
Do we agree to let matters lie,
knowing the truth will bring more pain,
or do we face the challenge
facing us with a strength
that will see us through,
understanding
each other,
as we
must?

This inverted etheree is my response to Colleen’s Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 151 #SynonymsOnly, which offers dig and grave as prompt words.
I have used “know” and “serious” as synonyms.

  1. Most of us spend a lifetime balancing candor and the conundrum of affection. Truth can sting like a bitch…yet, I support truth over white lies and alternate facts.
