Thoughts On Truth

What You Are

How many hearts
have you called
your home;

how many lives
have you pretended
to want;

how many ways
have you denounced
your self

in the name of
duty
and good
and inherited ideas about love?

Now you arrive,
no more lost than found
and you could see, could rest
in the news

that you can only
ever be
what you are.

What you didn’t know,
what slipped away
from you

maybe,
what you never dared
to believe

is the magnificence;
the perfect fingerprint
of design
written inside your heart.

You can only
ever be
what you are

And what you are
is the truth you must give away.

-Laura McKowen
