Sonnet Ii-Truth's, Truth Revealed

Rating: 4.6
Truth never held by barriers
Finds a way to rush out
The same truth sets barriers
Between friends, turning them lout

Fears no questions, same to everyone
This god's voice, the immortal's word
Though its virtue higher the skies
Has no value in this liar world

Truth, as sharp as sword
, though abrasions it heals……………
But awful for those
Whose secrets it reveals……….

But this sword blunt by lie's shield
Is defeated today in world's battlefield.

Akhtar Jawad 01 June 2014
Three blind men went to an elephant, . One of them touched his ears, he commented the elephant is like a tray. Another one touched his leg, he commented it's like a pillar. The third one touched his tail, he commented it's like a snake. It is difficult to define truth, every one has his own point of view. Every one is right up to an extent and every one is wrong, too. A thing from different frame of references appears different. In this poem you appeared an angry young man and wrote a beautiful poem, but swords are not the solution. Donate your eyes for a life longer than that of you, so that a blind man is capable of watching the complete elephant.

@the theme: there's no denying that such a grim battlefield exists, and we see a sorry state of affairs too as you related here, but yes, truth always finds a way in the long run... @the sonnet: you have all the capabilities Yash, you could have followed the complete Shakespearean alternate rhyme scheme in the 2nd and the 3rd stanzas too...with a little effort! @punctuation: 3 dots do well but not more than 3, you can edit, even the 3 are not required here... quite meaningful poem!

We often believe that ultimately truth will triumph! But unfortunately truth is made blunt and lie cutting sharp in today's battlefield... As a feeling youngster, you are disappointed over this reversal of values.... A great write!

The themes you choose and struggle with have knocked even experienced poets sideways. I give you ten out of ten for attempting them. I think you are very lucky to be a lover, and reader, of other people's poems... It's from reading and loving poetry that we grow a discriminating heart, loving the play and dance of words. Persevere Yash. Keep on reading poetry and sharing your struggles.

A really good poem. It is an interesting idea that truth, though sharp as a sword, can heal abrasions.

This sonnet is excellent. How do you narrow down as profound a topic as truth? And yet in these few lines, you describe it honestly and beautifully. I really enjoy your work.
