must I be injected

TRUTH = real things & real events

The fact is, full disclosure of one’s truth is usually shared in confidence with a trusted one. And the bottom line is, people are free to choose to believe whether something is true or not.

Poetry is often considered whimsical, frivolous, exaggerated, and sentimental. Pieces written and sometimes fabricated from one’s imagination, dreams, or fantasies, are generally thought of as fiction, but poetry can also be a creative way to tell a true story.
