The Perception Of Truth Poem by Anita Atina

The Perception Of Truth

Rating: 4.6

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

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

Truth has many faces, many facets. And of course, there is my truth and your truth. That is why, the Indian Upanishads say, "Hiranmayena Paatrena/Satyassapihitam Mukham "… the face of absolute truth is covered by a chalice of gold…

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

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