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,

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
