One of my life goals, is to find the general, absolute truth. I believe the absolute must be found within the relative, and the relative must be found within the absolute.
One day I came up with a plausible answer.
Just keep in mind this is purely philosophical, the way I like it ^^

Some extra info about relativism and the absolute (OPTIONAL):
Relativity states that everything is relative and is often self-contradictory. It never gives any correct, theoretical, philosophical answer, but is practical in real-life.

The absolute (sometimes called absolutism, absolutivism, absolute idealism or sometimes even positivism) states that there is an absolute answer to everything. That one answer will avoid all confusion and grey-zones and this view is very black&white. In Christianity, the ten commandments is an example of absolute rules.

*SPOILER*
*DON'T READ THIS BEFORE READING THE POEM*
*THIS IS OPTIONAL INFO*
If you were completely lost in my poetic words; words which often make it hard to express the bare-naked meaning, here's a summary:

I don't believe in religion, but relativism, so my absolute answer is really: "The absolute is there, within itself, but cannot be found other places than where everything is absolute. If one is to search for it, one need to weed out everything relative and scrape off the bottom of the deepest well."
But then, once you find yourself in that well, you're stuck down there and can't really use it for anything, but it's a purely theoretical thing.

I believe
I have found, the truth
The general truth; for all
Absolute answer; for everything

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Counter-wise
Relativity
Is relative to; itself
But gives no answer; to anything

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Absolute
Gives answer, to me
There’s an absolute; not more
It answers not life; only itself

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is now
my answer, to all
Perhaps one day you; ponder
You will find your truth; for everything.

Pro reading tip: Read each line in a semi-fast pace,
but give a long break before the next line.
The comma gives a short break,
while the semi-colon gives a medium break
This tip will make the poem flow much better on your tongue ^^
