Truth - Poem by Justin Reamer

Truth is one of the most
Sacred things in life,
Something we hold to be true,
Something we hold to be sacred.
It is what we believe in when
Looking for what is right.

Truth is one of Plato's Forms,
Which is Divine in its own right,
Which is one of the secrets of the universe;
We spend our lives ‘remembering'
What we forgot about one of the Forms,
And Truth is one of them.

Truth is sacred.
With it, we can resolve conflicts,
Fight injustice,
Preserve equality,
And decide what's right.

Superman fought for
Truth, justice, and the American Way.
He fought all the bad guys
In those comic books who were all about themselves,
And were false, disloyal, and malicious.

King Solomon was all about truth,
For he believed in wisdom,
And sought truth from God
In order to make just decisions.
Truth was Divine in his mind.

Moses believed in truth,
When he led the Israelites
To the Promised Land,
And when he administered justice
Among those who made
The Golden Calf.
Moses sought truth from the Lord
In order to do what he thought was right.

Dr Martin Luther King, Jr., believed in Truth,
For he saw the injustice in his society,
And he fought for what was right.

Ghandi believed in truth,
For he saw what the Brits did
To the Hindu people
And all the Indians
(The people who lived in India)
And did what he thought was right.
He sought truth to teach people
What was true and taught people
What was peaceful and right.

Truth is a splendid thing;
It is sacred;
It is a gift we all share.
We have to use it correctly in order
To make it right.
It is one of Plato's Forms,
And it is the greatest gift we have.
Truth is glorious divine.

    I think putting a fiction character like Superman in the same category as Solomon, Moses, Ghandi, and Martin Luther Jr. sort of clouded whatever truth the poem was trying to convey. Superman never lived and he is NOT real. There's no truth to his existence or accomplishments except those in comics books. (Report) Reply
