When Truths Collide

By Mandy Doerr

I didn't want to see the truth
That laid before my eyes
There were other truths - engraved in stone -
Controlling the forces of my life

I should had never let it in my heart
And leave it there to grow
Instead I denied its presence
As it burrowed into my soul

And now, too late, I face it
It invades my very dreams
Forcing me to admit what I once denied
My mind echoing my heart's screams

But there is nothing I can do
Without destroying my own soul
No matter what my choice
I will never again be whole

So I return to the oldest truth
That ever within my heart stirred
Above all that I have ever been
I am a woman of my word
