In this truth poem, you will learn that truth is truth. It can't be bent or swayed. As you read, consider your view of truth. How would you define truth?
Truth Poem - What is Truth?
“I promise I will tell the truth,” the cowboy told the judge,
then proceeded to regale the court with details of the grudge
that ended with a shouting match and punches being thrown
by black and blue combatants whose motives were unknown.
“I promise I will tell the truth,” the barmaid told the court
but her story contradicted what the cowboy did report.
“I promise I will tell the truth,” another witness swore
but his story differed greatly from the two that came before.
So many of us think the truth is what we want or feel.
But that’s just our perspective and often, it’s not real.
Truth is Truth, no matter what. It can’t be bent or swayed.
Truth is simple; black and white. It can’t be slightly grayed.
Those who don’t acknowledge God live this pastel lie;
You have your truth and I have mine. But then they wonder why
the people we depend upon are those who rob us blind.
And then they cry for justice. But justice, they will find
requires some rules for right and wrong that stem from what is true
and what is fair for everyone not just a group or two.
Even some with faith in God turn blind eyes to what’s true
because they can’t imagine God will really follow through
on promises of punishment for those who don’t believe.
They think God will adjust His truth to fit what they perceive.
But the God who made the universe did it with a plan
including what we call free will. Just so you understand
that means we get the chance to choose what’s easy or what’s true.
Too many pick the easy path and if that’s true of you
be warned that your decisions now will have eternal weight.
Believe and witness to the Truth and do not hesitate
because our God has made it clear in Truth, there’s just one way
to guarantee eternal life. Accept Jesus Christ today.
