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.
