Truth

 

By Daniel A. Obiomah

Warri City, Nigeria

 


Night is true,

So is daylight;

Both opposed in dogma,

Make a complement,

Time.

 

Saint is true,

Sinner is true,

Like thesis and antithesis;

In their union,

Produce contention, with

Revalorization.

 

Sunshine is true,

As rain is true;

Fiery sun and watery rain

Linked

In verdure

Is true.

 

The patient alchemist,

Whose is the secret,

To combine saint and sinner

Into Life,

Grasps the Truth.
