Lies or Truth~OctPoWriMo Day 22

Almost Heaven
Almost Heaven

The Prompt:

“Have you ever played the game: Two Lies and a Truth? That’s when you tell someone two things that are a lie and one thing that is the truth. And through that the person has to guess which is the truth. Let’s try to play a game with our poetry today. In today’s poem, let’s put the focus directly on us. For some of us- myself included- it’s preferable to write about others. This time around, let’s tell each other two lies and one truth. Whether they’re ridiculous, mundane, shocking, or interesting tidbits, weave them together so we cant’ tell the difference. You can decide on your post whether you want people to guess the truth or just tell them. Remember the prompts are just suggestions and have fun!”~Tamara Woods

I chose an Acrostic for this prompt. Please see:  http://www.shadowpoetry.com/resources/wip/acrostic.html

Love has carried me everywhere

don’t like dogs for all their hair

Every day is dark and dismal when I rise

So which are the truth and which are lies?

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. To tell a truth
    or a lie
    only those who
    dare,
    sometime before
    i die

    Two Lies

    Through live rhyme
    a President gift
    metallic blue maserati?
    Once again through time
    found myself adrift
    where a though
    paid twenty-three billion
    ifinn you comprehend..

    A Truth

    An addict living
    on the street
    writing poetry..

    Living within a curse!

  2. Lovely acrostic … I can’t even imagine you waking up to dark dismal days … nor not having love in your heart for animals of all kind despite their hair … and I’m sure love carries you every where!
