Careful what you seek
The hand into the pit
The foot into the deep
The unturned log
Careful what you seek
The letter hidden deep
The text message from your peek
The unknown call
Careful what you seek…for
@ Eric Alagan, 2011
Historical fiction mostly, but also some multi-genre stories & anecdotes
This is something I can relate to because my world almost collapsed with my husband’s lies and misdeeds. The truth was with me all the while, I just refused to look…
Hello, Eva dearest,
Yes, I thought this post might resonate.
Luv and hugz,
I had to think about that one. Hopefully truth is a travelling companion.
Two women, both suspected their husbands of having an affair.
One confronted her man, divorced and lives bitterly ever after – as the thought of betrayal keeps her company and tears her insides out. At age sixty-five she remains a man-hater.
The second did not dig – she did not want that truth for company – but made extra efforts to make their marriage work. Because deep down she knew her man was good. He returned to her and never left her side. They are now in their early fifties.
The above are based on true stories. We know both couples – failed with the first but succeeded in helping the second stay together.
Some truths, make poor travelling companions, I reckon.
Those were interesting case studies.
Thank you 🙂
– as that was my only intention – to prick, not to preach
We may hide the truth for our convenience, but it will always be out in the most unexpected of times. Thoughtful words
Thank you Padmini – lies are born of and borne by fear, I reckon
Inspiring writings :3 I am glad you stumbled upon one of my poems and pointed me towards your work
Thank you for the return visit and glad you find my writing inspiring 🙂
(P/s Posted a comment – Everything beautiful dies)
I failed to find an appropriate line to stick those words of thought into the entry. So i riddled it in there instead 😉 Glad you liked it Eric 🙂
Love the last lines about truth! So very true! <3 it!
Thank you, Therese 🙂
Lovely Yes we need to be careful of what we wish for and/or seek for…good reminder…truth is like a shadow travels with us as a faithful companion…we may ditch it every now, try to ingore it and then but it nevers leaves us ….
Lisa and I help couples with matrimonial issues. It is amazing how both men and women insist on digging into the past.
A man had an affair, regretted it and after that became faithful as faithful can be. Many years later, the wife got wind of it and insisted on digging it up – 12 years after his affair ended. They are divorced now. He remarried and she is now a lonely and bitter 50 year-old.
When we first suggested not to, she insisted and hired a private investigator.
The man was wrong, no excuses but I still scratch my head…
oh sad but past does have some quirky ways of catching up….its sad the woman has lost faith,and had the wife betrayed i am sure that man would have done the same..its not easy to forgive or forget….
both you and Lisa are wonderful people giving back so much to society,helping and spreading warmth and love
bless you both
According to the left, truth is now relative – how very convenient.
Isn’t that the truth 🙂
Truth is engraved in your heart, believe it.
only what you believe, matters.
Thanks for letting me know about your work.
Thank you for your visit and comment.
Interesting, truth is something, the one thing, we always trust, we believe it over everything else in life.
Thank you for stopping by with your comment. Yes, Truth is what you say and sometimes it can be inconvenient. Peace, Eric
What a wonderful way to display and convey, truth as our traveling companion 🙂 Thank you and Happy Holidays!
Thank you, Jessie. You do meaningful work…a calling, I rekon. Happy Holidays to you too, Eric
isn’t that the truth! Love this piece
Thank you for stopping by. I am following your blog and found much of interest – will be back to relish your writing. All good wishes, Eric
Gentle reminders about what we must seek is better to me than a forged ahead action that misses the beat of love. This is a great reminder to me of what facts I do not need to find because what is in me, is always the answer. Blessings be.
Happy that this resonated with you.Peace.
Good day, Sir. It is so very nice to have you back. Glad that you liked it. All good wishes for the day ahead.
Good morning, Eric, and thank you for these lines. Yes, Truth is our travelling companion who guides us towards Reality. A journey with many adventures ; but a journey without end !

You are so right – can be scary isn’t it?
The truth is the only thing that will ever be!
