There is a Truth

    Newer Older

    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!

    Poem: Richard Walker

    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....
