Still It’s Never Enough

I PURCHASE TRUTH

I purchase truth
Pay with a thought
Trading for love
What sorrow bought
Anxious to know
All I possess
Truth is rare
Settle for less

I purchase truth
Pay with a prayer
Barter for joy
When life’s unfair
Eager to know
All I become
Truth will tell
Better than some

I purchase truth
Pay with my soul
Leveraging time
For what I stole
Dying to know
All I have left
Truth will judge
Thiever and theft
