A Poem by Sam Freeland

our truth

Our behavior will be observed
in all the things we do
Others will want to believe
that what they see is true
This composit of who we are
will be lived by us all of our days
Changing and often repeated
in so many different ways
These actions are a choice
to show others where we stand
What we like and accept
even what should be banned
If we want others to listen
be very careful with any change
Being ready to accept their opinions
it will help in any exchange
The only truth is our hindsight
though not what many will want
Let them speak their mind
even when it is only a taunt
Remember that they are also
no more or less than they do
They earn their rights by behavior
and nothing could be more true
The universe owes us nothing
it is people who do the acts
We all have complex brains
trying to understand the facts
We are here due to behavior
it took years and years of truth
Be thankful you are now older
no longer just a naive youth

This makes me think of a quote from Game of Thrones, for some reason. Tyrion says "Never forget what you are. The rest of the world will not. Wear it like armor, and it can never be used to hurt you."
Well done!
