Rock of Truth

Today I am certain,
finally figured it out.
Whew! what a relief!
I wave the flag of truth
based on self-righteousness.

Today I am certain, tomorrow,
a “yeah, but what if…” creeps
in, dissolving my certainty in
an instant. How can the rock of
truth be as shifting sand?

I was so certain I had the truth!

  2. I like to think truth is eternal and doesn’t change on our emotional whim. I think the constants will always be constant.

    who wants to spend time with those people?

  4. See Pat – I agree the only thing certain is ability to shift cause even rocks become sand. (somehow that comment sounded so much wittier in my head!)

    What if there is no eternal truth?
