Poem - Empty Truths

The poem “Empty Truths” was inspired by thoughts about how the value of the self is defined.


Empty Truths

When the math denies the truth
that value lays in the obtuse
then return is measured far too short
a fraction of the true worth

denial is the easy path
one traveled by all involved
when the map only shows
dogma's taint turned to roads

only asking staid results
the vanilla of cheers extolled
equations will only lie
supply answers the wise deny

even while the most precious gifts
are eschewed through ignorance
when calculations run by fools
are the basis of empty truths.
