“ If Truth Be Told ”~ how then discern ~

If truth be told

I will yet reach,

A vision worthy

Cosmos entreats,

Not bent chicane

Of vitiate deceit,

Yet who’s to say

Man didn’t teach,

The gods sly ways,

Thus so to breach,

How then discern

Of which I speak,

Thus be held truth

Or but failed preach,

Too credible to hold

Tho history has one doubt,

Of man’s hidden truth be told!

 

                    this poem was inspired by the poem ‘Truth’

                                written by Xenophanes,

                                              Greek philosopher, theologian and poet.

“ If Only ” ~ wishful thinking ~

If only

Wishful thinking

Evidenced an inkling

Of probable reality,

Mightn’t so endorse

That of every wish

Held dreamers,

Be credible of course,

Save the odd amiss

Finds wasted time,

For likely be but myths

Of disquieting design…

 

If only

Suffering wants,

Said wishful thinking

Be thus understood,

One may not opt bidding

For mind game’s likelihood!
