The Web Poetry Corner - Gaele Arnott - Truth

Truth

by

Gaele Arnott

Integrity sits like a bullet from a gun,
waiting to pierce the heart of the accused.
For the perception of truth is in the heart
of the accuser,
differing in perception with the accused.

Each has an aspect of truth,
seen in differing colours and hues.
Which truth is right?
That of the accused
or maybe the accuser.

Which member lit the fire,
that burns brightly within?
Each so staunch in their point of view,
that the colour of truth passes by.

A pattern established
at the beginning of youth,
leaves the accused
with nothing to say.

The mind set so established,
that the accused is convicted
before the trial even begun.
Nothing said, will ever establish
the innocence of the accused.

The bullet is fired,
the heart bursts with the pain,
of truth, unresolved
Again.
