Poem: Be my truth!

Updated on September 4, 2013

Introduction!

Here is a poem about truth. Truth is almost non existent in today's world!

My poems it's not about literary accomplishment, but about touching hearts and witnessing through poetry.

Take some time and read this inspired poem!

Be my truth!

Sitting here, Wondering about,

You, Lord!

Longing for purity
Longing for truth

What is true today?
Diamonds or perhaps gold?
Preacher's message? or not?
The 16 year old virgin? or not?

All seems false and fake
All seems shiny and plastic
All tastes and smell the same
All looks and feel the same

Politicians lie and cheat
Media lying for profit
People don't want to hear
The truth to set us free

Where did the truth go?
No truth to be found
No Hope to be seen
No man's honor to see

I realize with a shock
Truth has fled from us
It is perhaps now time
To look for this treasure

We have been defiled
Deceived by the enemy
The lie has infiltrated
The truth is replaced

So hopeless it seems
To discern from the lie
Who is going to reveal
Who is going to prevail?

For sight, O Lord I pray
Your incorruptible truth
I long for
No more lies

Help me in my distress
Be my Truth
Be my Lord
Set me free.

Truth wil set you free!

Wikipedia!

Truth is most often used to mean in accord with fact or reality, or fidelity to an original or to a standard or ideal.

The opposite of truth is falsehood, which, correspondingly, can also take on a logical, factual, or ethical meaning.

The concept of truth is discussed and debated in several contexts, including philosophy and religion.

Many human activities depend upon the concept, which is assumed rather than a subject of discussion, including science, law, and everyday life.

Various theories and views of truth continue to be debated among scholars and philosophers. Language and words are a means by which humans convey information to one another and the method used to determine what is a "truth" is termed a criterion of truth. There are differing claims on such questions as what constitutes truth: what things are truthbearers capable of being true or false; how to define and identify truth; the roles that revealed and acquired knowledge play; and whether truth is subjective orobjective, relative or absolute.

Many religions consider perfect knowledge of all truth about all things (omniscience) to be an attribute of a divine or supernatural being.

The truth!
