Zapped by Truth
By Don Iannone

Bare truth descends,
like an unannounced lightning bolt
from inner sky.
It's a direct hit.
All in its path--
blown to bits.
Complete descimation.
Debris everywhere.
Nothing left to cling to.
Ego loses. Truth wins.

Sure does feel like that sometimes!
Hope all is well, Don!

"Bare truth" - curious words to me. As if there were a truth that is not bare.

Powerful! I love this poem. It 'hit' me directly :-)

Thank you all for your comments. Travis...some times truth makes us feel more bare.

Joy to each of you.
