Beneficial Tool

Facts to know them kept as evidence.
Is a beneficial tool.
Convenient and easy and handy to use.
When it becomes necessary,
To stop a lot of crap.
Unloaded to overflow a dumping of it,
On truth...
Naysayers deluded wish not to hear.
Or listen.
Yet when facts appear heard loud and clear.
Opening eyes wider.
And begins to unplug disbelieving ears.
Mouths quickly shut tight.
On bitten tongues not to move.
As if in the process,
A disputing in defiance against the facts...
Would not lessen the pain,
Already shown to have been self inflicted.

Every fact should be kept as evidence. Truth matters a lot in life. Opening eyes wider everything should be observed. A brilliant poem is very well penned. This is an amazing sharing done really.10
