The Truth is What We All Seek

You are the master of your soul, the pilot of your destiny.
You know where you've been, and all the secrets held there within.
Speak not to me, of how things should have been, but of reality and
its weight on men.

Dream of better times to be, keep reality at bay.
If, we follow the foot steps of hope, then…
maybe we will find the unadulterated
truth someday.

Truth is what we most often seek,
but lies are what we most often reap.
wise men, clergymen, scholar, priest…
all end up in a liar's heap. Only the
truth, will let your conscience sleep.

So, seek not the truth from others,
Who are eager to sell you their perceptions,
and deceive not yourself, but instead, use your
own intellect and logic to decipher the one unrelenting
question…the answer to be, will fill your satisfaction…
Just try it and see!
