“I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately, I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, To put to rout all that was not life and not when I had come to die Discover that I had not lived.” --Henry David Thoreau

What do I believe?
What's what I ask
When I cannot see
A truth that has passed?

What do I know?
That's my next resort
But what the answer may show
Often falls short

How do I cope
with my own ignorance?
Life's a slippery slope
It could be my last chance

Because part of the truth
Is all I obtain,
And any grounds of recuse
Don't really pertain,

I couldn't predict
In all of my days
How I'll reach a verdict
--But I have my ways

So judge I will do
And Judge I will be
For justice for you
Is solace for me.

This is a response to my first poem. I wanted to see if I could relate the issue of truth to both side of the situation presented.
