The Truth is often difficult to find,
For it’s not easily identified,
Recognized, understood or defined.
And, if found, not easily verified.
If the Truth be known, more often than not,
It’s stumbled upon in the dark without
Really ever knowing precisely what
Was sensed, beyond a reasonable doubt.
In reality, there is no such thing
As one Truth. There are many to be found.
Though, they are rarely, if ever, touching,
They are quite often intimately bound
Together in an extremely complex
And competitive relationship that
Ignores, challenges, reflects and rejects
The other as if in mortal combat.
Without affection, compassion and grace,
They will never be able to embrace.
