WE HOLD THESE (REVISED) TRUTHS

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.

    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

      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.
