Treasure Island

Anita Atina


The perception of truth


Fact exists, truth needs to be believed

My truth is important to me

I also understand that

Your truth is important, to you


My life is not just a single truth

But a village of many kinds of truth

The version you believe, may be different from mine

And both versions are true, to each of us


The duality of truth

Fights for resolution

And yet, coexists

Quietly, when it needs to


Funny concept this truth

Does fact indeed exist?

And do we really need,

To believe the truth?


Are both just empty shadows

We chase, to play our role

In a divine comedy

For an audience of one

    The belief that truth exists is universal. but as you say our perceptions differ.

    The arrogance of organised religions who claim to have the only truth is unbeleivable to any thinking person We each have to find our own way to the truth (Report) Reply

    The simple truth is that it is not always simple, but your perception of it is right on. (Report) Reply

    A famous saying I read once, said 'Truth is in the eye of the beholder.' I really liked your poem. Well written with a strong message. kate (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
