Truth

by Abbey (12 years old)
(Worthington, Ohio)



Truth is the hardest thing to find. It is hidden beneath the ice
of a never ending river. The truth sinks deeper with every lie.
When the ice is broken only one chip comes off that skitters across the river. It is running away before the ice cracks. Once one lie is told it takes 100 truths be told to trust yourself again.

Poignant
by: southpawokpoet

I don't know what is hurting you, what you wrote is very poignant. but please cut yourself some slack.Otherwise you will burn your self to slag in no time. Try to understand your motive before you get onto your self., and know you deserve forgiveness even from yourself. Rest gently please. Dusty

kayla
by: abbey [12 years old]

kayla t. i think... if you don't like it just because it doesn't rhyme then i get it but try to find the meaning too it and you may like it better. poems don't have to rhyme and quite frankly they mean more and tell more of a story when they don't... and I've read your poems and they don't rhyme so stop telling me to make a rhyming poem... o.k i can take criticism but only to an extent and i want you to stop telling me what i already know... what's done is done and I'm proud of this poem that is the one thing you can and will never take away from me!!!!!

Well Done
by: Anonymous

Hello Abbey,

By all means you should keep up with your writing. And write often.

We very much enjoyed the idea behind "Truth" as well as the way you presented the idea in poetic form.

The more you write and the more you open yourself up to constructive criticism (as you ask for in your comment), the better you will become at your craft.

Very few writers are actually willing to place their egos on the line and ask people for an honest opinion of their output. We are extremely impressed with the maturity you demonstrate as a writer, and at such a tender age.

We very much look forward to more of your work.

Warmest regards.
