Those Who Would Know


A poem, from the late Chuck Trafelet of Traverse City, Michigan:

Those who would know the truth

Must be prepared to accept

It for what it is; for once it

Is known there can be no

Turning back, no denying

Its existence, and not always

Can you exchange what is

For what you wish it to be


One thought on “Those Who Would Know

  1. I knew and loved Chuck when we were in college together, and I have never completely healed from his suicide. It is comforting to find his words here and know that his mind still lives.
