Illusion of thought

I see a thousand lies titillating
A thousand more hanging  
Told in history books to accept 

And science presents me   
With factual, factual lies  
More of the same in stories told   

I see a thousand lies 
My eyes, at it, conspiring to tell 
In pictures view in optical illusion  

And religion holds the holly grail  
Of all that is said, in chinese whispers 
Two thousand years, of some whispers 

I see a thousand lights 
Different colours of creed  in view 
To be against, differences we share 

Yet with fingers stretched  to the point 
Held between the pictures view  
Both top and bottom, becomes the same 

I see a thousand lies
My eyes plays illusions on view 
And others go fanatic on beliefs 

But most I see 
Most of all, close on view 
Is a shape of truth, though be it abstract 

Looking close enough 
It sits in clear view 
Hidden by optical illusion

  1. It is funny how we can look at the same picture and not see the same thing. And history when written by one side can be totally different when written by the other side. As to who is right we may never know but we can only hope that the facts as written are true. Makes one wonder how good an eye witness account actually is. It is a good thing that DNA is not biased.

    You write such wonderful poems and when I look at that picture I am not sure why but I think of Mickey Mouse and happiness. I can also see how you see love in the abstract.

    Thank you again for sharing such a cool poem with us for this weeks Theme Thursday.

    God bless.
