tRUTH

 

When echoes from the clock’s tock hastened slowly

Without a corresponding tick in the chambers of memory,

Leaving only an aural appeal of melancholy  

And imprints on the sands of time sang of implausible recovery-

Thus calling for a voluntarily conspicuous glimpse,

That’s when we stood on the sanctimonious overpass

With a hypocritical aberration on institutional collapse;

We refused to mention our created crass.  

 

Our truth was farfetched: mouths spoke unexamined truths

Instead of speaking reasonable golden silence;

The heart knew nothing about our truths.

Truths spoken in the absence of conscience.

And we said: “We have found a new world!”

And that’s a peacekeeping lie we’d always held.

 

Go tell the children of grandchildren yet unborn:

“We have built a sun,”

When we are gone,

And that that sun was once a gun!

We have made the largest light.

Wishing on four leaf clovers: “We have made a sun”.

And that’s our truth. 

Truth that quenched the greatest light!

 

But the second truth is what our children shall drink water on

When we’re long gone!

When our history books shall say we had made the sea also,

But ate it overnight.

  • THE TRUTH
    The TRUTH is that man is a spiritual being
    The TRUTH is that man’s true home is not on this Earth
    You can learn the truth from books
    Teachers can teach you the truth
    But you can never know the truth from them
    Because the truth can only be known through experience
    You must encounter the TRUTH to know it
    The TRUTH is ONE
    The TRUTH is anything that sets you free
