Poem of the Week: ‘Shadow Truths’ by Carolyn Chorley

Shadow Truths


The surface hides what is really true

With a veil of smoke too thick to see through

Some think they see the truth hidden deep

But the shadows do only cover and keep


Your secrets, your treasures, your thoughts so dear

All the goodness you have gathered so very near

That which makes you the whole you now are

And allows you to safely keep your soul ajar


To share only what is needed to live a life

But not cause your spirit any lasting strife

For the best part of you is not the wrapper the world sees

But that within you that only true love frees
