Voice Of Truth - Poem by Elaine Battersby

A voice of truth, of reason,
speaks out with splendid clarity,
dismissed by raised newspapers and turned heads.
Indifferent to his words his truth.
oh, for the openness of unfenced paddocks,
which tempt the flight of mind and spirit.
Freeing us to be, to feel.
To fulfil our deepest, wildest dreams and desires,
without remorse or fear.
Raising us up, for up, onto a higher plain
of limitless possibilities, beauty and creativity.
Grasping the meaning of life, of love.

    Yes I've met the man and his wife. Indifferent to his words and truth, what a shame. (Report) Reply

    Nice piece there 'misinterpretation' or a 'suppressed advocator of truth'.
    Good work, Elaine

    Loved this piece primarily as it felt like you are championing the words of a specific person and feel they have been misinterpreted or represented... Really liked the unfenced paddocks suggesting freedom of speech... Tyvm karen (Report) Reply

    Very good poem Elaine For truth 10 and for your interest from Tagore
    Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
    Where the knowledge is free...
    Keep the spirit alive
