Poem: "The Truth Is"

This is today's freebie, inspired by new prompter Angel. It belongs to the series Love Is For Children. Funny how nobody notices this dynamic, isn't it?


"The Truth Is"

Tony

When I wear the suit,
I feel safe. I feel free.

My other half embraces me,
and we are one.

I act on instinct,
and the machinery responds.

I see what's wrecking my city today,
and the targeting system locks on.

When they shoot back,
I know the armor will protect me.

It's a wild ride, but
I always make it home.


JARVIS

When I wear the suit,
I feel secure. I feel complete.

I embrace my other half,
and we are one.

I act on logic, and
User Tony_Stark responds.

Error messages pour in from my city,
and User Tony_Stark identifies why.

When they shoot back,
I know that I can protect him.

It's a wild ride, but
I always bring him home.


The truth is ...
we are Iron Man.
