Sit Back and Let the Words Soothe

Sit Back and Let the Words Soothe
Sit Back and Let the Words Soothe

Words do soothe…

The pen so often crooked,
giving truth some scope,
the telling somewhat hog-tied in facts
but professed in acts of honorable reflection,
a detection not always acknowledged.

Yet to pen the truth in boredom strokes
would be a travesty, a colorless,
texture-less mote around the words,
where thoughts should soar
in harmonious freedom.

So, for the heart of compliance,
a reliance on the venerable soul of the poet,
let me just say that when beauty is penned,
and the lies are transcended
as beguiling thoughts a flow,
what difference will truth show, in the end.

Proffered lies, no,
truth in scope to hang itself,
yet held up by beauty’s embrace, yes,
and mind will remain attuned to beauty,
not quibble with semantics
or antics that prove or disprove,
just sit back and let the words soothe.

    “where thoughts should soar
    in harmonious freedom.”

    I love that phrase, Tony. Truth is often soothing, not always, but when it is then it is sacrosanct. Well done, Tony.
