Attentive Is The Tiller Of The Light

Written by: tom mcmurray

Accept no truth seen through another's sight 
But till the light within your sweeter seed;
Attentive is the tiller of the light! 

The wise man knows the origins of blight 
Begin when "want" of man is seen as "need"; 
Accept no truth seen through another's sight. 

Too often man is blinded by a bright 
Embellished myth converted to a creed; 
Attentive is the tiller of the light! 

When man depends on allegory's might 
To cast out fear the truth must then recede; 
Accept no truth seen through another's sight. 

When men of reason gather to recite 
Mythology as truth the truth will bleed; 
Attentive is the tiller of the light! 

The masses are deluded day and night 
As they upon each other's error feed, 
Accept no truth seen through another's sight 
Attentive is the tiller of the light!
