What is True?

Truth. What is true? Let’s ruminate on that for a moment. The first thing that came to mind when I read today’s prompt word truth, is about something that has absolutely nothing to do with the word true. In fact, I’m not even sure I can accurately describe it, but I’ll try. Truth is…complex. What is true for me may not be true for you. That’s crazy, right? I mean, how many different truths could there possibly be? The TRUTH is…I think there are many.

Truth.

What is true?

Is it a feeling,

Deep Inside?

Is it linear?

Is it one size fits all?

Is there really only one truth?

How will we ever know?

Science can answer many of our questions,

About that I am certain.

Logic is absolutely real.

Emotion is magic.

It grows and changes.

It can make you do the most daring things.

It can do the opposite.

Emotions are different for each one of us.

Our hearts feel different.

Our minds interpret the same feelings differently.

So is there one universal truth for everyone?

I’ll leave that open for you to decide for yourself.

My answer,

Quite plainly,

Is no.

Emotional truth is different for everyone.

Everyone is having a different experience.

It’s quite fascinating,

Really.

The key thing to do,

Is to listen.

Be open-minded.

Be compassionate.

Be kind.

Be open-hearted.

Be true to you.
