Tell

I tell you, pain is truth without a face.
The fracture site itself, does now define
the facts, that lies nor logic will erase,
no matter how a man might wish or whine.
The truth is rarely told in ringing tones
of thunder from the throats of expert men.
The truth lives in the heart and gut and bones
of righteous souls and innocent children.
It's more a cautious probe and slow surmise.
The quest for truth is paid by sacrifice
of comfort's cache of white and loving lies.
Small wonderment so few will pay the price!
So often heard, now dull with apathy,
O humankind, the Truth WILL set you free!
