Silence and Denial

By Tru Dillon

My hiking boots are leather and I carry a big stick
These boots will delicately trample all those who oppose me
My stick unbending and unwieldy to grasp
is my sword of truth

Cutting back the curtain of silence
Slash and cut this mask of denial
Smash and trample all those who Lie

Tendrils of hope spring up
spring green
they unfurl and shake their way to the ever present light
Where was this light
when I was alone at 14
when my father told me I was a mistake,
I never should have been

Slash and Cut
Smash and Trample
No longer silent in the face of this Lie
This forest is full of Lies
I will be here a long time
Prepare: The journey awaits
