Truth Is Also A Lie

Truth is not what you tell.
Truth is not what I listen.
Truth is what I feel.

Truth is not what I write.
Truth is not what you read.
Truth is what you realize.

Truth is also a lie.

    Truth is what you realise...
    there is a very thin line between truth and lie
    as always very provocative as Sandra so aptly describes...

    Very provocative. There is a very fine line between
    truth and lies. And yet they are as eternally
    opposed to one another as light is from
    darkness. Fascinating thoughts.

    Always your friend,
