One search engine towers above all others
It bypasses every site
Where hope yields no fruit
Yet tries to outrank
The search for truth that sets men free.
And sometimes do
But not for long.
With steel will
We change our browser
To maximize the search
To help find the path
That leads to the Narrow Way
Always aware of the task
To serve as site master
To make truth known
To spread the answer to life
That all men seek
Men who ask,
“Is anything absolute, sacred, and true?”
They ponder and wonder
And believe not.
Unable to avoid the deception
Of conflicting ideologies
“I would follow Christ
The One who claims to be
The Way, the Truth.
I would seek Him, search for Him
Wherever truth is found.”
“Perhaps among His followers
Faithful, undisguised, transparent, true.”
But, where are His followers?
Invisible among the masses
From whom we cannot identify.
Their wanton ways
Are bold, brash, and unrepentant
Whose waywardness cannot be ignored,
Or deleted at will,
Or filed away in a bin
To recycle again
They are the living,
But spiritually dead to what passes as truth
On life’s screen
Where truth is a many splintered thing.
Dead to the many who search for absolute’s anchor
The solid assurance
Of unequivocal dogma.
Is there none
Who search for truth and find it
Who speak the truth and live it
Stake their claim to righteousness and prove it?
Real, genuine, authentic, guaranteed
Is that their label,
Their username by which they access Truth?
“Yes,” sounds a gentle Voice.
“Then,” cries the seeker,
“Lead me to the place of my deliverance
And show me why your data deserves my attention.
Not with words displayed on fleshly screens
That yield few converts, nor satisfy the searcher
Not with works that confirm the agnostic
And fail to convince the sceptic
But with truth secured in a protected site
That will not fail nor shut down.”
With a click as quick
As an eye’s wink
The seeker is instantly silenced
By words emblazoned on a lighted screen
Other followers have I that are faithful and true
And those who seek,
While not yet achieving
Can always find Me, if they search for Me
With all their hearts.
Saved As….Site for Truth
