From A Distance

“From a distance, we all have enough,
And no one is in need.
And there are no guns, no bombs and no disease,
No hungry mouths to feed.
From a distance, we are instruments
Marching in a common band.
Playing songs of hope, playing songs of peace.
They are songs of every man.

From a distance, you look like my friend,
Even though we are at war.
From a distance, I just can’t comprehend,
What all this fighting is for.
From a distance, there is harmony,
And it echoes through the land.
And it’s the hope of hopes, it’s the love of loves.
It’s the heart of every man.”

– An extract of the lyrics from the song “From A Distance” as sung by Bette Midler.

[Songs which are meaningful can hold much wisdom and can stand the test of time. One of such songs, I opine is the aforementioned , which was very written. Words and rhythm of the song resonates with my soul.]

    Hello Passion For Truths,

    My interest is because of the name you have chosen for yourself.

    What is your own definition of untruth?

      Ha..ha..that’s an interesting question. Well, if someone says there is no such thing as gravity, then I would consider it ‘untruth’, because indeed gravity is a multi-dimensional energy that is unseen to the naked eye but yet discernible. 🙂

    I am passionate about separating truth from untruth. I hope you are too.

    You have not answered my question(you have not given me the definition of untruth), but you seem to be young so I will let it go.

    Now I ask you another question:-
    If you see an apple as having red color, then is it true that the apple is red?

      This is hilarious! Ha.. ha.. And why would you continue to ask me such questions if I seem so young? Anyway, have fun on this planet seeking the definition of truths and untruths. May you find what you are looking for. All the best! 🙂
