Pitfalls of the Search


the mosaic of history,
too many missing pieces
unexplained,
too many labyrinths and cul de sacs

hindsight,
no less a hazy scene,
a mirage, a maze,
full of ghosts, phantoms and boasts,

learning from
blurred foggy events,
misted and distorted
full of ego reported,
,
slanted and transplanted
how is one to sift the true
from the false,
discern fact from faith

story saga, myth, legend and fable
told and retold in rhetoric so able
emotions and of drama
poetic and prose

relates and unreels
the history of what was

or might have been
let us assume
nothing, or much less
was true, accurate or complete
