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.
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.
