What Lies Beneath?
I want to get to the bottom of this…
So put your cards on the table.
Don’t beat around the bush.
Let’s get to the business at hand.
Please don’t mince any words
And don’t pull any punches.
Are you ready to get down to brass tacks?
Get to the nitty-gritty and spell it out?
Pin down the facts and
Put your finger on the key point?
Time to spill the beans.
Get to the meat and potatoes-
The nuts and bolts, the reality.
The crux of the matter.
Share the groundwork, dig into the hard facts.
Expound, explain, enumerate, educate me.
We are past the time for excuses, smokescreens,
Gaslighting, politics, gimmicks, distortion and subterfuge.
Beneath misconceptions, confusion, fear, hurt
conspiracy myths, greed, fabrications, the ongoing struggle
are facts filtered through points of view and perceptions?
But what is the nature of the beast?
Examine the long and short of it.
It is past time to get to the bottom of the issues,
Find the truth, the underlying reality,
And answer the real question of “WHY?”
At the heart of the matter, the core,
I believe the essence-
Is often as simple as the need for connection,
The need to feel valued and heard
And the universal need to be loved.
