Like fish in water

We chase the truth,
But seem never
To catch it?
What we catch is lies;
What we don’t seek,
What we seek:
The truth;
And that is what
Destroys the world.
We are told
Only the truth
Will set us free.
Agreed;
But how do we get
The truth?
Where do we find
The truth?
Why is the truth
So slippery?
Like fish in water.

I will do all to find you

Why are you so hard to come?
I am talking to you, Success;
I have been seeking you
For such a long time,
Yet, I have not found you;
Why are you so slippery?
So difficult to find;
Why are you like this?
What am I to do?
Do I keep searching for you?
Or I call it quits?
To call it quits means
To say I have failed;
I am not ready for that;
I am not going to fail;
I will find you;
You are hard to find,
But I will find you;
I will not stop searching
Till I find you.
That is my resolution.
I will do all to find you.

Smooth but dangerous

If I start to talk about
What I think about a smooth surface,
Any smooth surface,
I may never end;
So much I have to say;
Say not that a thing is good
Simply because
Its surface is smooth;
The smooth surface of your skin
Does not necessarily mean you have
A healthy body;
Just as a road with a smooth surface
Does not mean a safe road;
It may be smooth but slippery and dangerous;
Let the surface not deceive you;
Judging anything from its surface
Is like judging someone from their appearance;
Appearances often deceive;
Look beyond the surface;
To get a real taste of the soup.
