Who Knew?


Ever since I first wrote this signature post for my blog I have had the pleasure of learning so much more and meeting so many new people through my blog and social media. So I wanted to repost it for those new and wonderful people that have become so supportive of my writing. Thanks guys, you know who you are.

Who Knew? by Veronica Romm

Who knew knowledge could be sorrow?

Who knew our rights could be stripped away?

Who knew laws could never govern?

Who knew leaders could get lost?

Who knew identities could be stolen?

Who knew faces could be altered?

Who knew science could betray us?

Who knew history could be ignored?

Who knew evil could be taught?

Who knew heroes could be villains?

Who knew our neighbors could be saints?

Who knew sinners could be teachers?

Who knew clothes could make the man?

Who knew possessions could be priceless?

Who knew wealth could be so hungry?

Who knew money could buy power?

Who knew fame could be an illness?

Who knew words could soon be censored?

Who knew hate could turn to love?

Who knew our bodies could betray us?

Who knew hearts could really break?

Who knew laughter could be medicine?

Who knew our children could be cruel?

Who knew man could choose a bomb?

Who knew mothers could kill their babies?

Who knew sisters could be strangers?

Who knew our sons could die at war?

Who knew pain could be a business?

Who knew pleasure could lead to death?

Who knew friends could turn against us?

Who knew memories could fade so quickly?

Who knew lovers could be untrue?

Who knew time could heal all wounds?

Who knew questions could be left unanswered?

  1. Veronica,
    You do NOT know me, but I thought that I’d stop by and give you a friendly nudge to the LH blog – you know the one from your Missouri ‘friend’ where she runs to hide??? And, please go to the RT site and read on the Margaret Cho Dancing with the Stars thread for some news. I’m not being mean, but I think that you might smile a bit and who knows, you might REALLY enjoy the comeuppance delivered to a certain woolfwoman…I’m hoping that you can contact me and let me know what you think…
    Enjoy reading, I enjoyed writing!

  2. Very nice! It has a melancholy yet still bright tone about it.

    Fantastic phrasing.

    Be back soon, please keep it up!
