Finding Truth

Scarce truth, we search for it in dabs and bits
in a contradictory atmosphere.
When promise or accusation test our wits,
our hopes are for redeeming truth to hear.

Is forward progress the order of the day?
Or, do we drag yesterday's faults behind;
will answers with firm substance guide the way?
Confusing and vague reasons fog the mind.

Clear facts, elusive as deer in the wood,
reflect on words that rightly do endure.
When we revered divine word regarding good,
self evident truths that justice may assure.

In atmosphere when to achieve is prime,
each citizen, whether mature, and youth,
needs an anchor to establish, place or time,
and base decisions on what is seen of truth.
