Windshield Wipers

In this world
People only say
what they want
others to know.
Speech gives the power
of deception
to those who choose to cloud
the truth.
Speech is the rain
that blurs
the drivers vision
on the highway of truth.
But in writing
Truth comes out.
Bias is obvious.
Lies are unmasked.
Writing is what
allows me to know
who to trust with my life
and who would take it.
Writing is the wipers
moving back and forth.
To and fro.
Clearing all that is untrue.
All that blurs reality.
The rain of hiding.
The rain that so willingly
hides the truth.
