Making truth of my lies

Making truth of my lies

A Chapter by Ana Papaya

I know
if I gather it all together
the stray words and glances lost or stolen
every forced smile or strained touch
all the times I closed my eyes not to see
every time I let a new man inside me 
the weight of all of these things would bury me alive
so I push them aside
and make truth of my lies

So true, and only we know our truths.
Thanks very much Cory.
Trial-and-error is often how we learn.
Cringing at the memories of that education--as if we've always possessed our present discernment--makes no sense.
What causes us to aspire to such an unrealistic standard of perfection?
Powerful bit of work, Ana!
