Truth


Truth surely is a mysterious thing
for what is truth when it seems to change with every passing day
that cannot be truth
for truth does not change
does not pass away

I always did find it strange
that Jesus answered naught on that day
and if he did it must have been as ambiguous as hell
so that not even the scribes could tell
I sometimes wonder if he had
would it have changed history
or did he know this was all
the way it was meant to be

Maybe the truth is just what is on the inside
maybe the truth is something from which you can never hide
maybe the truth can cut, twist and hurt
maybe it is too much to ask for truth from everyone you meet
maybe if you got it life would be sweet
maybe i wish i did not have eyes
for the truth is hard to look at
when you are being deceived
maybe i wish lies had never been invented
then i would not have been part of the great deception

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
