Silence Of The Truth

They know but they will not say

They know but tell lies anyway

They know people do not want to hear

They know people do not want to live in fear

They know exactly what is going on

They know everything that is wrong

They know people just how to play

They know the truth but deny it anyway

They know that we live in a digital age

They know how the people to enrage

They know how to turn you against me

They know they control your only reality

They know the future of humankind

They know the future how to define

They know that information is King

They know how to control everything

They are in control of me

have a way with these repetitious lines. I normally am not a fan of them, but you make them seem alright. Your title is great, I like it much! Yes, the truth is hard to bear. Your command of rhyme and near-rhyme is very good. I can appreciate the message here. Good job. ~ Geezer.

Thanks. I do my best.

I loved your flow it was easy to read but my mind keep wondering whom the word THEY meant was it the government or a person I think if you identified this it would have given me a little more direction

I actually meant the media

I like the message which rings true to me.Too bad there are so many who don't realize what is going on. As to the poem and structure. Had you considered breaking this into stanzas?

Thanks, I thought I did but the format must have not come through.
