Perhaps Truth

written by: Mike Turner


Perhaps Truth
Being ultimate
So all encompassing
In its completeness is beyond our mortal comprehension
A picture only understood in its own context
So, how may we know Truth?

Perhaps Truth
Has many faces
Like a shattered mirror
Reflecting different aspects of a single image
Or a prism
Cleaving one single, pure light into multiple spectrums

Perhaps Truth
Is presented to us
In multiple perspectives
So that each assumes a form in which we may perceive
That aspect of Truth which applies to each of us

Perhaps Truth
Can thus be understood
In the context of our life
And experience
And our soul
