Poem: "Speaking What You See"

This poem came out of the May 11, 2010 Poetry Fishbowl.  It was inspired by a prompt from jenny_evergreen.  It was sponsored by laffingkat as part of the 2010 Holiday Poetry Sale.  Happy holidays, and thank you!

Speaking What You See

Say what you mean when you mean it.
Mean what you say when you say it.

Speak what you see when you see it,
And watch where the words go as they leave you.

Tell the truth as you know it.
If it turns out not to be true,
You will learn that sooner this way.

Share your opinions and feelings.
As long as they're yours, they're valid.
So are everyone else's -- and they all weigh the same.

Never assume that something
goes without saying.
Sometimes the obvious
is only visible from an obscure angle.

I'm pleased too. The sale turned out quite effective in the end.
