Reader Poem: Truth


Happiness is not purchased

with coins or fame,

for none of us are free

while some of us

are in bondage,

none of us may find comfort

while the widow, the orphan,

and the stranger are oppressed;

until we realize

that the greatest joy

comes from helping others,

none of us are free—

truth is not written by man,

it is found inscribed

on our souls

by our Heavenly Father.

—Dave Golbert
