 Harry Sweeden. My life in verse.


Who’s Truth?


Asking more questions gets us no closer to the answer

when the truth is always hidden from view.

Broadcasters and pundits try to decipher each answer

then we as the audience decide what is true?

Which means our decisions are always tainted with opinions

individuals who have lived their own lives

never knowing the real truth cause that's always hidden

instead we get to feast on more lies.

Why is the truth something that needs to be guarded?

Why is it we prefer to deceive?

Surely a more open world that we all have a say in

will give us a truth to believe.
