What is

What is

A Poem by Peter Truth



Born into a crowded space

that you can’t control,

running from arrows

that you can not see. 

Trapped in who

you are

because you

are what you’ve

always been.


Sub-consciously you

search for what

will never be found. 

Apathy is a gift,

it numbs and soothes.

Time was once just

an illusion,

but now it’s a

cold reality

that judges and taunts

at every turn.


Darkness is better

than light, it hides

the warts and faults

that consume

and hinder.


But after the

darkness comes

the light,

for better or worse.
