The truth is wonderful

Truth is something beautiful

Truth is something wonderful
Beliefs are foolishness
Unless one finds the truth oneself
It could not matter less
The whole world seems to want belief
And that’s no good at all
Look at the world around and see
How belief can be so cruel.

Each one says they have the answer
It’s written in some book
Because they’re stuck in little prisons
And never do they look
They never smell the roses
Or hear the bird’s sweet song
They’re too busy being right
And making others wrong. 

The truth it never will be found 
In the voices of another
It’s found so deep within one’s being
And yet we always smother
It beneath our daft beliefs
And so the world’s a mess
This world is filled with foolishness
And such unhappiness.

    Hi Peter, The truth Is wonderful, Each of us speaks our own truth. I always usually add, that's the truth as I see It when answering a question. I usually go the way I believe to be right and there are many times I find myself alone. People are always telling me that I am on the wrong track. Another fine write Peter. As always, this piece has Its own special flow all the way through. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    Thank you Michael, no one else's truths are worth searching for. Self actualization is the only way to go. I appreciate your comments, my friend.......Peter

    The truth sets one free from the bondage lies that is so pervasive in the world today. I guess many deem it easier to conform to the norms of society rather than to go the right way Peter. Well said my friend.
