Priests Vow Truth Will Out

Priests Vow Truth Will Out

A Poem by bigfootprint
"

I hope to learn just what was real

"
History laments truth concealed.
In afterlife, to be unsealed,
Some real dramas may lose appeal.
I hope to learn just what was real
In weird events I can't explain.

A mystery once fazed this small boy.
A hairy biped fled a blazing wood.
I shuddered, for it brought no joy.
I told all, but none understood
My arcane sighting shared in vain.

At 20, a bright moon lighted
A graveyard on my wee-hour stroll.
A sobbing, barefoot lass, I sighted.
A man drives up, hunting the girl.
Girl, man, moon, car fade out. Insane.

At 70, a tube craft flies high,
Dwarfs B52 at setting sun.
The warplane fades in umbraed sky.
Ufo forms star with night begun.
Man's wits don't always pertain.

Things go bump and rustle at night.
Errant shadows can cause a fright.
Dig sites yield mysterious stuff,
And genetic clues hard to rebuff.
I'll wait and watch and not complain.

Hello Doug. Strange things do happen which can't be explained. I have two myself which puzzle me no end, concerning the deaths of my Dad and my younger brother. You narrate your tales with such interest, you really draw the reader in. I very much enjoyed this poem, especially its five line stanzas and the streamlined flow of your words. It has been a while since I read anything from you, so it is a delight to find something new from your pen. Hope you are keeping well my friend.

yes...the "whys" of things can be a bugger for sure ... your title starts me out unsettled in the light of sexual abuse by Priests of young boys ... but i do not find a connection in your poem .. unless it is that Truth will win out and the ideal Priest will tell the truth ... i like the age progression .. each verse its own story .. actually wish there were some in between ages ..like maybe 40 ... and these days you could even go 90 :) lots of stories out there that bring mystery to our lives ..me thinks the only real question however is.... Why "why"? ;)

pretty far out there {;-O
I love the questions this asks of us and our world. Just what is truth? Who are we, from where have we come, where are we going? This has plagued my thoughts for decades and my novella 'Witch's Seed' explored such concepts.

Are these vignettes autobiographical? I'm sure you recall "The Twilight Zone." These tales would fit in well there.
