Shadows - Poem by Charl JF Cilliers
There is no truth
all men can share:
shadows stalk the sun
when it appears
no transcendental beauty
beyond things as they are
no wish-fulfilment stars
in the sun’s harsh glare.
Our doubts we clutch
to ourselves like a threadbare coat
as we listen to that hymn of our uncertainty
which is all the truth and faith that we have got.
