What you believe
What you think
What you know

Unless you’ve happened
Along some great truth
You’d care to share

I’ll share

Chances are
you’re wrong

Never listened
Never learned
All you got
Is what you’ve

been told.

Parents, Friends
Relatives, Politicians

All profound truths

That pale in comparison
to thought, to knowledge
to action, to compassion
to Experience.

Truth from someone
who has never ventured
from their safety
from their warmth
from their family

yet in their world
They know the world
as it is.

Their truth.
