The Admirable Truth
Truth is admired by those who seek it,
It tells of giving an attitude of restraint;
Take a long walk and recollect your thoughts,
For truth is a house of ultimate benefits;
Much is disdained by those in the arts,
For their truths have been singled out
Like little islands of men and women in union.
In the arts a truth lingers for the gardens
To encapsulate a true upbringing,
Fascinating is the joyous occasion
In which they reside for their ores and alloys.
Cages are set up consisting of service,
Hurting an arrow of distaste so inflicted by some
Who adore the fascinations of this age.
Truth mixes up, truth has a manner of telling
The total and utter truth, so full of itself.
