O, tormenting truth,

gnawing, clawing, deafening,

scourge to the conscience.

    • Diana, thank you for your thoughtful observation and comments, as always. The way I see it – truth doesn’t pander to our wills, hopes or beliefs so when it runs counter to what we want it to be, it hurts. Overcoming the pain takes courage and that’s part of awakening. Haikus are very challenging to me because I just have so much to say but it has forced me to keep to these few syllables. Every word has gotta count, essentially. I do enjoy the challenge though…Thanks again for coming by and reading it. Any suggestions for improvements are also much welcomed. 🙂
