Truth

Truth is dangerous,
They said.

She stayed silent.
Kept hidden scars
reminding her of  violence.

Truth is dangerous ,
They said.

She told lies.
Kept hidden scars
behind plastic smiles.

Truth is dangerous,
they said.

She buried her guilt
Kept hidden scars
ret on her quilt.

Truth is dangerous,
they said.

She tore asunder.
Kept hidden scars
six feet under.
