I ask, not for truth

I ask, not for truth
But a freedom to tell
In a hidden valley of tears
Falling in open fields
Of wildflowers
A place where things
Stay hidden amongst
Fallen petals of velvet
And the remains of
Secrets buried and untouched
I ask, not for truth
But a strength to tell my story
In this valley of tears
Which fall in open fields
Of wildflowers
