It seems I have mistaken,
what for me in life has shaken,
beliefs I have long forsaken,
come back to haunt me so.
What once I thought an eloquence,
comes back as dire consequence,
and I in shock and pure defence,
renounce my vision lost.
How sight has somehow let me down,
a misguided view of some renown,
I clung too fast to rocky ground,
and now I pay the price.
It's funny how the truth does change,
or is it me that's rearranged,
the thinking I was so sure pertained,
to all I knew of life.
Reality paints a different stroke,
so crystal clear from what I evoked,
and now I doubt my judgement, hope,
deluded as I can be.
I guess it proves that sight evolves,
and understanding is more involved,
than what I though when I was told,
that truth will set you free.
Everything in life is in constant movement, change, including our perceptions.
