Overview

Truth Be Told? is a collection of poems penned to invoke truth and make people aware of their feelings and the feelings of others. The real truth and the truth that we often give off to people trying to hide are true selves.

Sometimes we say we want the truth, but can we handle the truth once we obtain it. The world like your brain stores some truth and sometimes locks it away; for example a traumatic event that your brain may have locked away in order for you to move on with life. It’s the same with Mother Nature, she locks some truths of the world beneath the sea bed, some in trees some in the stars etc.

We as humans grow every day in the metaphysical portion of our life, even though it may not be noticed right away. It is this capacity to grow unconsciously which allows for truths to be revealed to us.

Never forget in your search for truths, some you will uncover as you read the works in this book and dig deep past your heart into your soul that the best discoveries happen when you’re not really looking for them.

    Reviewed by Rich Follett for Readers' Favorite

    Truth Be Told? by Nathan Curtis is a poignant, heartrending collection of verse which asks big questions and demands big answers. The focus of Truth Be Told? is twofold: on one hand, the pain of a gay black man coming out to a family who subsequently rejects him; on the other, a chronicle of the intense isolation which follows. There is an ‘in-your-face’ sense of urgency about these poems that will have readers with similar experiences standing up and cheering. These words will not be ignored - were never intended to be gentle. ‘We all yearn for truth,’ they seem to say, ‘but what if the truth we find is a truth no one we love wants?’ The question hangs above Nathan Curtis’ universe like a personal sword of Damocles, sending ripples of resonance out to lonely, suffering souls everywhere. 

    Nathan Curtis’ poetic voice is insistent and straight-to-the-point. The effect is a bit like a visit to the chiropractor: it makes you gasp at first but later you feel oh-so-much better. These are poems with the power to make the lonely feel less alone and the unloved less removed from happiness; if only for a moment, the relentless assault of injustice and iniquity upon those who have chosen life paths outside the narrow vision of their families and loved ones is abated. The result, however ephemeral, is cathartic and renewable upon repeat readings.

    I write for a love/a love I never had/A love I am searching for/a love I need/A love I yearn for/A love I have found/A love that left me (Loving Me Truthfully). The uncompromising level gaze of Truth Be Told? by Nathan Curtis, fixed squarely on the human condition, is an undeniable indictment of complacency and a must-read for the disenfranchised.
