WHAT IS TRUTH AFTER ALL?/Poets United — Midweek Motif/Truth

WHAT IS TRUTH AFTER ALL?

What is truth after all?

How do we recognize it?

Isn’t it all relative?

What is true for you

And what is true for me

May be different

 

I know you say

That cannot be

And yet

Two people

Give their truth

About what happened

 

And you would swear

They were in different places

At different times

Can I reveal a truth

That is not favorable to me?

Can you?

 

Perhaps there is no one thing

That we can call truth

That we can all agree on

So in this moment

I will honor your truth

And hope you will honor mine

 

We look into each other’s eyes

And we say nice things

Things easy to be heard

Do I question what you say?

Do I question the glow of the moon?

Do I question what my heart feels?

That is my truth all day long
