. . .They say that the truth will set you free,
but then, so will a lie;
It depends if you’re trying to get to the promised land,
or just trying to get by. . .
Reminds me of Auden:
. . .We are free to choose our paths,
but choose we must.
And the tales we tell of our past must be true.
Not writing much lately. Just living, and thinking, and telling the truth to myself as much as I can.
I read something once, and of course, being me, can’t remember who wrote it or what I read it in, but it was about how we must always tell the truth. First to ourselves, and then, if it will “help,” in any way, to others.
It’s that “if” that’s the real doozy.
