As I Was Leaving, They Are Just Arriving

you meet new people at
the airport today
when the plane just landed
and the door was opened

fresh faces from the north
moving south
still entertaining hopes
and ambitions how

to make more money
buy a few acres of land
build a new house
start a family

you are with a pack of
chosen clothes
and you are moving north
fed up
with hopes
promises without bones

you smile
and they see you
misinterpreting that gesture
as a welcome

deep within you
goodbye is truer
death levels everyone
and there is no point
anymore
at all these

you are the truth
they are the truths in the making
lies crawl like worms
towards that
empty mountain
top

Truth Are Lies.. Lies Are Truth..

speak your truth from your quivering lips
but also your lies comes through them..
your half lies are also your half truths
yet your half truths are also your half lies
what shall you talk about them if your thruth are your lies
and your lieas are your truths
then this world would be filled of noise
being lies and being the truth
until all of us will be lost
what to believe and follow
will it be the half lies
or the half truths?
which one is to choice
the truth is yours but also are the lies..
so let us all live with he truths and the lies
within our hearts within our minds
till we are lost in a maze of half lies and half truths

The Philosophic Pill

I've wisdom from the East and from the West,
That's subject to no academic rule;
You may find it in the jeering of a jest,
Or distill it from the folly of a fool.
I can teach you with a quip, if I've a mind;
I can trick you into learning with a laugh;
Oh, winnow all my folly, and you'll find
A grain or two of truth among the chaff!

I can set a braggart quailing with a quip,
The upstart I can wither with a whim;
He may wear a merry laugh upon his lip,
But his laughter has an echo that is grim.
When they've offered to the world in merry guise,
Unpleasant truths are swallowed with a will -
For he who'd make his fellow-creatures wise
Should always gild the philosophic pill!

Core Truths To Salvation

There are core Truths we believe, from The Word that we receive,
Truths out of God’s Revelation, which lead a soul unto Salvation.
The first Truth is a belief in God, this I say with a resounding nod,
The Creator of all that we see, The Lord God who exists eternally.

The top of God’s Creation plan, was when The Lord created man,
From the dust man was formed; in God’s image he was adorned,
Created to be eternal with a soul, but, from perfection he did fall,
When in Paradise Satan entered in, introducing man to mortal sin.

That perfection man had at first, was now stained by sin’s curse,
Initially given immortal breath, man now would face certain death.
God would provide by His Son, eternal redemption for everyone,
In His Plan, He called Jesus Christ, to be man’s atoning sacrifice.

This would point to the Cross, where God had redeemed the lost,
On a wicked cross on Calvary, where Christ died for you and me.
This is the very heart of Grace, where sinners can place their faith,
In the finished work of Jesus Christ, who paid God’s eternal price.

But, Christ who died rose again, to grant a New Life to sinful men,
When this Truth you do believe, Eternal Life you shall you receive.
These are Truths for everyone, through the Witness of God’s Son,
When they embrace their Creator, as their Lord and Eternal Savior.

T.S. Eliot

All significant truths are private truths. As they become public they cease to become truths; they become facts, or at best, part of the public character; or at worst, catchwords.

Get out of the myth

Fire will burn things; air will fill the space.
God will save you; hell will warn you.
Which are the truths and which, the faith?
Faith is not truth; get out of the myth.
