*** The Non-Existent Truth***

The defined and undefined truth,
Endowed with knowledge or without knowledge,
Sometimes real or unreal,
Certainly including being and non-being,

Accepting that being is true,
Accepting the non-existence of being,

When the absence of existence means the negation of being,

Accepting that truth did not exist,
And it would have been true that it did not exist, at the same time,
Understanding that truth is eternal,

Imagining the idea of a non-existing world,
Before its own existence,

Accepting the universal and immortal truth,
So interchangeable with being,
While the universal never ceases of itself,

Recognizing the truth always existing in an eternal intellect,
While the created truth is not existing,

Understanding the created truth as not existing,
Remaining truth, when the true things have been destroyed,
Or remaining truth, when all true things can be destroyed,
Or remaining truth, when our minds cannot see the truth itself,

Truth, being in a sense, always as a consequence of its act.
Truth, not being in sense because
The sense does not know the truth it truly judges,
Even it judges truly about things,

The existent and non-existent truth.......

    I'm not sure if this is a poem, however it's interesting as hell. What does truth look like to you (to anyone for that matter) ? To me it looks like a hairy turd floating in the toilet with some blood there too. Myself worrying about that bloody turd is truth. (Report) Reply

    you are a wonderful poet...i love your incisive and realistic thought about truth...Truth is absolute and can never be relative...'We can do nothing against truth but only for truth.'2Corinthians 13: 8.
    This is what makes truth different from a fact.
    Keep writing...

    absolutely absolutely incredible. very thought provoking! and the tittle is very very interesting.
    if we are talking about absolute truths, sometimes i think a belief is more important and more powerful than the truth.
    loved this poem! thanks for sharing! (Report) Reply

    yes there you are, as we do exist nonexistently and it is also true that we do rave even beyond by existence in our time and space traversing the path from relevance to irreverence, so time is the cardinal point of our existence, today we all are here by our existence yet with deep thought being nonexistent, this ia wonderful piece, as w3hen ingenious,10+++, thanks for sharing (Report) Reply

    Truth always exists. Only our cognizance of it happens or does not happen. Perception of truth is varied and is a function of individual's mental-make up, scholarship and the like things. Nice contemplative verse. (Report) Reply

    Accepting the universal and immortal truth,
    So interchangeable with being,
    While the universal never ceases of itself...
