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

lines like wheel tracks

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.

Truth seeker, there is no path, no method that has at the end of it 'you
finding Truth'.
Truth just IS.
If You are something separate from Truth, then You are a deception, an
illusion -- that You is not Truth.

In my opinion, e.e. cummings' poem, Seeker Of Truth, is trying to say that
everyone has their own path to take, and it is only that path that will
take you to your personal truth. I think with "follow no path", he is
saying that you cannot turn another's way of life into your own, you must
instead carve your own path. All paths lead to truth, but one person's
truth isn't another's.

The true seeker cannot walk the path and expect to see where he's going.
Only when he does not try to walk the path and just let it be, will he be
granted the truth that lies within
