The Truth Of Youth


We were attracted by the truth,
A truth we shared
About so many things,
Life itself,
Actually.

We put life on a slide,
Slipped it under a microscope lens.
Voila!
Our beliefs confirmed.

Our unanimity of youth,
Inspiring romance,
Lust,
Eventually,
Marriage.

We grew older.

Now we spend our days
In hand-to-hand combat.
