Truth Lies In The Moment

Truth lies in the moment--
it is not trapped by words,
nor engraved on stone pillars.

Truth is not what we believe,
not what we may die for; it
does not travel on the wind
and is not at rainbow's end....

Yet it is always with you, with
every single heartbeat, every
breath, and every thought,
and it waits quietly, patiently
for your light to reignite after
every blackish night--for truth
is not always beauty: at times
it is harsh, brutal, ugly. From
toothache to heartbreak truth
will never be deterred: gross or
golden, it will always be with you,
every moment you live... then
afterwards, yours for eternity.

    i think that when we can "walk that mile in another's shoes" truth becomes a sweet friend, yet...I must be wrong, because i could never even allow myself to understand evil...yet, we all know it's out there. very nice poem, made me think! love and hugs, catie :)
