The Core of Truth
Getting to the core of the Truth is like peeling an onion.
As you peel away the dead skin,
You may feel a little tinge.
However when you slice/chop to get to the center of the matter,
So you may savor the flavor,
The tinge begins to sting as tears swell.
Seeing through the tears is difficult
Because everything is out of focus,
Causing us to dwell on the effects of an action,
Instead of waiting to savor the flavor we originally sought.
