Truth Decided It

It was truth, I swore

So did he

It was nothing but the truth.

We started where we ended

Then we went about

And came back to where we started.

Until, we heard it said

truth be yours

truth be his

and truth be mine

we looked around perplexed

and asked

“Did you hear that?”

Yes, he said

and we looked at each other

like it was the first time.

Then we heard the voice

“You heard, but I spoke”

and our truths are thus different.

That decided it

and then we walked together.

Hush

Hush, I said

calm

compose

shut your eyes

sleep

the world that seeks

will wait at the window

the men that ask

keep them at the door

hush I said

calm

compose

shut your eyes

sleep

the world that you seek

waits on you

hold,cherish,hold

the mind, let her talk

the heart, listen to her

and forget.forget.forget.
