Speak Your Truth
â€œI will not cry!â€ She said to I. â€œWe must not lie or lest we die. â€œFor tears to fall from eyes so small, women who crawl grown men who bawl â€œscrambling around until they drown, tears running down from upturned frowns. â€œNow honestly,â€ she said to me â€œcan you not see how they will flee â€œwhen you speak truth from your past youth? Their lies uncouth reveal the spoof â€œthat they have played from day to day keep you away and make you stay. â€œSo do not cry!â€ she said to I, â€œand never lie or their game buy. â€œYou be a sleuth as a proud youth life will be smooth just speak your truth!â€

I see your thought with this poem but the stanza with 'or their game buy' lost me in the structure. Like how each stanza rhymed on each line very difficult in getting a thought across when you do this but you were able to and this is good.
