Ah, perfection in it's simplicity! To follow a path is to go where others
have gone. The true Seeker searches where no one has been before, chasing
the elusive Truth uncolored by thoughts and emotions. A pristine Truth
unspoiled by the hand of man. All paths lead to an ending, whereas Truth is
eternal and can be found wherever you happen to be if looked for hard
enough.

this poem is short, but gets the readers attention by making them think
what they decide is actually truth.

by not specifying what the truth is the writer emphasises that the the
truth lies within the individual. He further shows that the truth exists in
the words 'Truth is here'

Interestingly, in his minimalistic style, cummings plays with not
complicating things too much... note that "where" is just "here" with an
extra "w" (and note that he leaves "some" out, as if the lost guy is trying
to simplify, but not quite doing enough).

He is saying that getting to truth is simpler than you may have thought...
not "somewhere", not even "where," but "here."

Best,

Farhad.
