Truth Be Known


Truth Be Known

By: JP Leddy


Finding my voice in the chaos of doubt

Breaks the shackles of disbelief and blindness

That the love I seek does not come from without

But comes from the heart I call my own

And not love for that person of my dreams

But for the person of my life , my very self

For truth be known it is I

That must win my heart first

Before I can give it to any other

Whether it be lover or friend

    That must win my heart first …”

    JP – this speaks volumes – and it is the entire “heart of the matter” (no pun intended) of the many lost and disillusioned souls … we aren’t taught to love ourselves first – without the guilt of selfishness or arrogance attached to it. Powerful lesson within. Thank you for leaving a link for me to enjoy! Thank you for the visit!

  4. What a beautiful picture and beautiful sentiments in the poem to match! Your words are so true…I wish more people understood the importance of self love, first and foremost. You did a great job with this! πŸ™‚

  5. No truer words have been laid down – pity too many people do not realize that contentment begins with being at peace with who they are inside rather than who they have on their arm – fantastic write!

  6. Yes, so very true, ‘that for me to win my heart first before others can’!

    It is in this way that we will be able to know what our heart wants…:)) Thanks for such a lovely poem!!!
