599. Privileged liars

Poets are privileged liars.
Without even seeing the truth,
They tell the world
That they have realised the truth.

Lovers are privileged liars.
After having realised the truth
In fullest measure,
They tell the world
That they are doubtful about the existence of truth.

Seekers are privileged liars.
God repeatedly tells them
That He has His Omniscience, His Omnipotence
For them, only for them.
They tell the world
That they desperately need
What God outwardly has
What God inwardly is.
