Truth likes to travel bare feet.



 
Truth travels bare feet
People disguise it with lies
Yes, for tricks and treats

Basking in glory
How far before it's unmasked?
Verity prevails

Too little too late 
Life and it's ways of teaching
Cognizant of heart




Truth is one constant in life that never changes. Truth is simple. People complicate it by dressing it up in a variety of layers of lies. But how far can truth travel in the heat of the burden before it starts shedding it's layers to be bare and naked again. Then, the heat of the wrath caused is much more than ever. Strange are the ways of life sometimes. When you wrong, everything goes right... and finally when you decide and do the right thing, everything tumbles down! It's a hard life with truth by your side.. but don't let go. 



This Haiku is written for Haiku Heights. The prompt for this week is 'MASK'.

  5. yes yes..... truth is pushed back into these little tiny grooves, people hardly care when they do that.. they say its just a small hole in the wall..

    but eventually, the groove cracks up and the truth comes down.

    yes, the time it takes and the ways themselves, are very strange..
    wonderfully written!

  10. I like that line "Truth travels bare feet" very much. Somehow reminds me of when I was a kid walking around bare foot all the time.

    1. Truth and the innocence of a child goes hand in hand i guess.. or should i say, foot in foot! ;)

  11. Truth prevails! It would somehow work itself in such a way to catch the liars off-guard. Great thoughts, Pranita!

  12. Truth frequently hides in the dark behind a mask of lies, or even well-intentioned disguise. But I think you are right. Eventually it will seek the light.
