From Whence We Came

a poem by Frank Davis, USA

Truth pains the suavely deceptive, the worldly
those who apparently see its simple revelation--
indeed, its very existence--as an affront to good manners
a breach of their liar's etiquette. Should the cruel, the covetous
the corrupt and amoral plot to destroy you, take heart! You
in all likelihood, represent something intolerable to them;
someone they cannot control with foolish lies; someone
who innately reveres the truth. When the torturers
come to "convert" you, when they try to frighten
you with their deadly threats, their painful cuts
know that you will, most certainly, not bleed
to death. Instead, you will--as do all
preservers of the light--
bleed to life.
