Today, we shall consider that
Mirror which we call truth,
When we see that where we’re at
Is years past the face of youth.

Now, truth can be a revelation,
Or in the cards we cash;
Truth may deal in hesitation,
Or may come in a flash.

Far be it from me to tell you
What you should/should not believe.
Let’s just say you would do well to
Neither youth, nor self, deceive.


  1. mistermuse, I liked your poem. The search for truth can be difficult. It is buried a pile of poor TV broadcating, the often deceitful social media and waves of stupid commentary. I am always on a quest to be true to myself. I began when I was about 7 years old.

    When you were 7 years old? You mean only 20 years ago? Who says most 20-somethings are shallow and immature!

    Who’s saying I’m not shallow and immature? Age has nothing to do with it.


  4. mistermuse says:

    You’re probably right. According to the bible, Methuselah lived to the age of 969 and had 700 wives and 300 concubines. If nothing else, he was a glutton for punishment

    “Beauty is truth and truth beauty. That is all ye need to know.” Supposedly.

      I’ll go with “supposedly.” I need to know a lot more about computer viruses because my computer has become infected, and even my more-savvy wife (whose computer I’m on now) can’t cure it. Until it gets fixed, my computer use is going to be limited to when her computer is free, so MONEY: THE LOOT OF ALL EVIL may be my last post for a while.


  6. Sorry to hear that your computer is on the fritz. mistermuse. You are bit off the numbers regarding my age. I do thank you for the compliment, however. I am 39 and in a holding pattern while flying above the airport, the final destination for every body. It may be a long wait since my family thinks I am getting younger than growing older. Must be in my genetic pool and all the clean living I have done since my gradustion. My eight grade graduation, that is. I did get a bit flirty in high school, I admit. That is the time when teenagers get to have some fun. Hope you get your computer fixed soon, Dear heart.
