I Saw 'The Truth'

Poem By Thanyarat Komolsingsakul

Oft times I wonder
Where is that line
That bridges or divides
To decide what's right.

Oft times I stand
Not making demands
Wondering where I land
'Tis hard to understand.

The ways of man
Can so bemuse, thus bringing
Portions of distress and restlessness
Heart finds it tough to fathom
The far gone depths of deceit
The despicable conspiracy
The 'filled-with-ulterior-motive' intimacy.

Is sincerity never to be found?
Is truthfulness such an obsolete?
Is kindness a rarity?
Is happiness so flimsy?
Is faith a no-no endeavor?
Are dreams that hard to grasp?
And is life really worth the pain?

I have been shown,
I have been known,
And I have flown...
Alone and aloof...
And I saw...
'The Truth'.

Though not treacherous-
In the treacherous sense,
Yet treacherous e'er they were.

Alas! This lingering Ghost,
Thou canst not so boast!
In thine own self

I look at myself today...
And realize all the gray..
All the long hard strewn flare,
Is showing itself off at bare.

Don't let it get to you,
Just fake a smile or two,
And you will surely see it through.

O dear success, thou art seem sweet,
Man strives and toils, all in desire to meet.

Man falls and bows, at thine conquest.
