There is a Truth

There is a truth lies within me.

Like a window that I see through

It beckons my mind a way to find,

This truth that lies within me.


This truth, though it evades me,

It stalks me and I falter.

(It refuses to be found)

I am then on a journey over uneven ground.


It shows me its edge, but nothing is defined .

I know it is there, though nothing is aligned.

It begs me to seek, but steps away when look,

Like opening the pages to an empty book.


This is a truth that I just can’t find.

Is this a truth that’s going to leave me behind?

Maybe its’ that, and that is the truth.

That I am to be left, hiding away, like a sleuth!


This truth, I am sure, when at last it is ‘found’

Will once and for all hold me down to the ground.

Then, like a shock as it hits me

It’s always been all around

And never really needed to be found!

Note: Sometimes the things week seek are in plain view, Only ‘we’ really know ourselves and it’s pointless looking everywhere else, you have to admit that you are who you are....
