Illuminated remnants of lofty lies

rain down on fallow fields of truth

once sown in shame...

left there to wither with deliberate disregard.

I wonder if our children cry

in resurrected remembering?

A thought to ponder without answer from time to time and end to end..This has many areas in which to dwell.....Sandy

Even when the truth hurts, ignoring it won't make it disappear. A child caught in a lie, especially a lofty one, will certainly cry, even if the lie was not their own. Patrick

I sense some deeper meaning… Some sorrow… Some pain… That I cannot fathom in this poem.

children are the first to say it straight. probably cry for lack of fairy tales and the truth in sarcasm. great write.

Deeply felt and powerful.

It is it not that children are adept at filtering out the truth from a lie. Well done

Wow! This one speaks volumes..........nicely done, Pat! It's amazing sometimes how a few cleverly penned phrases read like a thickly bound book!

Reviewed by Mary Ann Biddinger 4/16/2012
Children cry for not to understand the truth be told.
Excellent write Pat.

when fairy tales are too serious
to be laughed at or ignored..

excellent work, Pat, right to the truth

Reviewed by D Johnson 4/15/2012
Children remember the lies long after they realize they are lies and not truth. Damn good write.
Reviewed by D. Vegas 4/15/2012
Pat, We all have been told lies, but when you lie
to a child, they know they are being lied to and
therefore they do cry. Short and full of wisdom!

Reviewed by Jerry Bolton 4/15/2012
Back in "tha" day, Pat, this poem would have been called "heavy, man, heavy." Heck, it is still heavy in my opinion.

Lies / Truth / Shame / Children

Those four words all together is enough to make a grown man cry.
