there is never a single moment when you grow up but there is that one moment when you realize you have.


What is truth?
I was told Santa was real.
He had a red button nose and jolly laugh.
I could hear the thump of reindeer on the roof.
I was told to stop writing him letters.
I guess he didn’t want to hear from me that year.
Mommy quit baking cookies for him.

What is truth?
I was told every thing was okay.
My parents were happy, when they were together.
They never let me see them argue.
I was told to stop asking questions.
I guess it was my fault.
Daddy left making a bang, without so much of a word said.

What is truth?
I was told we looked perfect.
I liked his warm hugs and gentle kisses.
He called me just to say good night.
I was told we needed a break.
I guess he loved another girl.
People spread rumors like they’re peanut butter.

I ask, once again, what is truth?
No one will tell me.
I’m old enough to know?
It’s hard to trust anyone.
But, I’m stronger now, strong as a tree.
I know what the word sorry means, but
I was told too many lies.

God gave us two ears to hear, two eyes to see and two hands to hold. But why did God give us only one heart? Because he wants us to find the other one.
