Truth's Lament

I’ve been abandoned
No one seeks me anymore
Once I was sought with great eagerness
Now? I am a simply a philosophical debate

“Come to me and learn”
But no one loves me anymore
No one seems to care what I might say
And they mock those who remember me

“I have the answer.”
They howl at such a notion
On a footrace to the finish line
They simply stop when it seems right

I was once respected
My name commanded honor
But today it’s clear that no one cares
They invent fairy tales and give them my name

I wonder if one day
When all the roads are traveled
Will they remember me, my voice, my title
I wonder if they will recognize their thirst

In that defining moment
Will there be an intense yearning
Or simply a callous twinge of indifference
I am waiting and hoping to once again report for duty
