Oh Why tell me why
Why tell me why When I look at history It seems that everyone has a different opinion about what What truly happened? Are there really so many sides to the same story? How then does one determine truth? Recently I looked at Black history. Some say "Canada's history is whitewashed". Others say "Canada was a benevolent land". Who is true? Who is false? Perhaps, it's just another story from another people we need to listen to. Confusion washes over Making facts like quicksand Sinking deep into the fabric of time Memories fade as the stories are mingled. No truth, some truth, a mingling of dirt and water. How then can we see? How then can we know? Time Time to wash it clean To just tell the stories And let them sit. This, this is why those stories must be written. Just as God's word is written so His words can't be changed Can't be mingled with other perspectives over the course of time. Write down those words. Don't second guess. Let the words stand. Know the written truth.
