What Would Truth Tell Me

Poem By Francie Lynch

A woman's advice
leads to unhappy result
Old conservative saying goes.
A woman is a mother
And a mother knows better
The welfare of her child
An eternal and evergreen saying goes.

There's a Revolution coming,
The boots are on the streets;

We're stirring from our sleep.

My poem is my true selfie,
An X-ray of the inner me,
A snap-shot of reality,
A close-up of what's really me,

There were four high pines, straight, that branched out

over the hedge with holes.
