the truth

21 Jun

the truth cannot be negotiated with

it cannot be spun

it cannot be sold or traded for something better

the truth has no agenda

no color, no temperature, no texture

the truth is there, right in front of your face

but you can’t even be sure that truth exists

the truth shines far above

and the truth falls far below

there is nothing to it at all

and yet without it

all would be meaningless motion

a pointless pursuit

the truth can seem slippery

whenever you try to put it into words

the truth is what you can’t help seeing

when you are trying not to look
