A chapter in the book Wisdom Series

Truth

by Douglas Paul


Truth
Who knows what wisdom such a gift could bring
when truth, revealed, becomes a guiding star?
If truth, acknowledged, then was given wing,
would it determine everything we are?

How would it change the way that we perceive,
if we allowed the truth to be our guide?
Would it enhance the life we might achieve
by changing feelings that we hold inside?

But if we shun the truth where will we be,
as lies conspire and vision is deceived?
What wonders will we fail to even see?
What higher goals will never be conceived?

If we let truth evade us as we grow,
there may be treasures we will never know.
