What Is Truth?

Is seeing the truth

Looking past a lie

Knowing when you say

Hello to a person

The last thing you say

Is goodbye

Forever shall you search

Only to find

The reason we live

Is in the end to die

And through it all

You will suffer

And endure pain

Seeing the sunshine

One the days that it rains

Learning from mistakes

That will come in due time

Not knowing what is truth

Not knowing what lies

Still having to choose

As you try to find

What makes you see

Can also make you blind

And undefined explanation

Gives the answers to it all

Only if you are blind to see

Could you see

What doesn’t belong

If you could see

You are blind

Not understanding the cause

See past the lie

Mislead in your youth

Use knowledge

And wisdom

To understand

What is truth
