truth that’s worth my trust (and it’s 2 part evolution)

for truth one seeks to find,
in books of scholars,
their facts and findings,
with information,
on websites,
sometimes leaves one blinding,
who should we then,
trust for hearing,
if not for those,
whose facts,
ascribe to,
a life worth living.

The above poem was one I wrote as my status on Facebook. A friend liked the past where I incorporated “website” and another friend tagged along and gave suggestions for a revamp. Here was his suggestion:

for truth one seeks to find,
in facebook profile of scholars,
their status updates and tweets,
with information,
on websites,
sometimes leaves one blinding,
who should we then,
trust for hearing,
if not for those,
whose facts,
ascribe to,
a life worth living.

After reading through I touched his suggestion with my own additions and this was the end product of the poem.

for truth one seeks to find,
in facebook profile of scholars,
their status updates and tweets,
with information,
on websites,
sometimes leaves one blinding,
who should we then,
trust for hearing,
if not for those,
whose facts,
embedded not with just,
touched up images,
enhanced by techies,
who subscribe to the art of perfecting pixels,
but a depiction of reality
to a life worth living.

The poem was inspired reading through a blog post where someone was giving out pointers on how he navigates himself through the influx of articles on the net and find the ones worthy of his trust in giving out information.
