Truth be Told

Truth be Told

A Poem by Allen Smuckler

short and sweet...sometimes one thought is enough. What's better than family?


I have long arms…

I don’t know why

I have long arms

but I do,


and I’m proud.


Everyone should have

what I have…

It would make

hugging each other

so much better…


and last

so much longer.
