Truth/…………………………….By Sami Khalil

It is not too late to change the self or things. Change requires truth.Truth requires change from us.

                          

 The Poem:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Truth can be:

Absolute or relative

Ancient or new

Decoyed or revealed

Ugly or beautiful

Offensive or defensive

Lost or mapped out

Naive or by rote (experienced)

Bringing discomfort or comforting, in the conference of trodden reality

and the limits of the “self.”

Truth is…

That today is the first day of everyone’s eternity,

To define its curves, to revisit the verbiages and lessons of life,

Where humans can find their own niches, in an order or out of an order, with a bit of sifting…

The way life was meant to be.

Truth is…

That today is the day of change, in the gathered remains of shells and beautiful wrecks of individualism,

where change requires different outcomes, otherwise it is insanity doing the same things expecting different results. And change does require tangibles, for things that do not touch us will not pain us or heal us, in the process of trials and tribulations, till the next verses and chapters of life.

Then, truth is…

Today is the day to spread your Phoenix…and rise.

This is no doubt a nice poem of ideas not of heart. If is edited in concise form it will become more emphatic what though it a prosiac in form..

Wow. Thank you so much Kasey for this wonderful review and kind words. Appreciated...:).......
This is a hard topic but you're able to express your thoughts anddeceived even opinion in a universal way . Truth is a hard pill to swallow especially if our pride and prejudice is on the line .Truth as in the case of a dispute has three side - your story, my story and the truth . Truth will hurt us first before it heals us . Truth in the end always stand. even when it stand alone albeit a lie will only last but a moment . Do we know what is the greatest lie ever told ? Its in three words .That " man is good ".

This piece is thought provoking . Thanks for sharing your brilliant mind .

Insanity and sanity is differentiated simply by the outcome of what the person claims to be true. Who is really sane? Who is really insane?

Beautiful, thought provoking poem!!

You have caught the essence of it. Absolute or relative - this is the truth. The rest is all expansion of this. In this world, only relative truths do exist and it is up to us to choose better truths from a set of given truths. What for? For leading a better life than the present one and for what else? The concluding verses are really wonderful.
