Truth is what we seek for
Truth is what we cannot see
What is truth? And what is fact?
Can we search for truth?
Or is it already here?
Sometimes science says this
And religion says that,
And some of these ‘this’es and ‘that’s
But other times, we doubt one,
We doubt their truth
And this creates a conflict
Between not only me and you
But me and myself, and sometimes I,
I try to find the truth in our world now.
Religion provides the why
But science reaches for the how,
Evolution, Creation, the Big Bang, the Flood,
Miracles, science, history,
The heavens, the inferno and purgatory
Life and death provide a certain mystery
That mankind cannot crack.
There are limits to our understanding,
Science is one window,
And sometimes we can even see through each other.
But other times the windows are dark
And we cannot see,
And must turn to the other
For some kind of understanding.
They’ll never be completely reconciled
Or completely apart
But I, I personally leap in faith
But want to study and examine
So I’m still investigating truth
I think it’ll take a while
My entire life, perhaps and likely.
But I’ll still be investigating
And trying to understand
While I can.
So I protect my own truth
But consider others
While they and I, and we seek for truth
