Truism In DNA

.

An Anglo-Irish peace-weaver

was married to the member

of another tribe to end old

hatreds.

.

It seldom worked

and she was forced

to watch her relatives

die in barbaric cruelty.

.

The peace-weaver's

path was one of impermeable 

loneliness and a righteous fate

worthy of revisting.

.

Truths permeated the air

exhaled by body cells made

by the double helix found

in basic instincts.

.

Truth is the highest

value for earth kind. Earth

kind, arrogantly poised,

is totally confounded by

this wisdom.

.

Sacrifice a lifetime to Truth.

Nurture actuality as if it

were a photo that captured

tidbits of psychological

shadows ticking..

.

The Anglo-Irish peace seeker

lives inside a logic that enlightens

and enfolds. Argumentation

is for nothing if not to clash

into the will to see truth clearly.

.

Endowed with unending passion,

love and share. Doggedly pursue

what peace-keepers discover.

Love is a philosophy.

The truth is a trap: in telling the truth it can cause a lot of trouble; and not telling the truth soon catches up with a person and makes trouble for them. Loved the last verse especially in your poem pointing out our need for the truth. Well written poem and a good read.

Logic and reason... a curse

Logic and reason... a curse and a blessing at the same time.

...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

Affirmative

Logic and reason

were sitting in a bar.

Logic asked Reason,

"Do my words made

sense to you?"

Reason smirked, replied,

"They would have, if

I was listening."

Yes...but now I have more

Yes...but now I have more here than I do there. Wordpress people are just not as inspiring for me for some reason. Idk. Maybe too showy. I mean...I really like how you can make your presentations really nice..but there just aren't a lot of people to learn from on there. It's good for reading. There are a lot of really good writers on there.

I know but I try to keep away from any kind of indoctrination

I know but I try to keep away from any kind of indoctrination.I'll do my own thing even if everyone tells me it is wrong.For every scoundrel there is a hero.For every enemy there is a friend. I was actually looking for a beaver swimming under a river.Ended up drowning myself LOL -Everything is untruth.The only truth is that there is nothing really attractive in truth so we all live and tell lies.Just today I posted a four-liner. Was it truth? No!!! Semi-truth? Yeas.. So a lie !!! OMG a ragpicker like me trying to write comments on YOUR post.What audacity !!!!!!!!!!!!! Truly sorry.
