Truth And Reality - Poem by Shehamul Manji
Truth and reality are one, but seperated by an abyss of ignorance.
Ignorance that dwarfs the vastness of Oceans and deserts.
Reality is plain to see, releaving the naked truth.
But my eyes cannot bear to look,
and my mind unable to accept it,
so I cover it with garments of deception,
fashioned after my misperceptions.
I worship false gods, choosing the seen over the unseen.
I know only the lies that I tell myself, on this road of life.
I know not the way since I departed from truth,
way back when I encountered reality.
