Another Sight

By Tony DeLorger © 2013

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.
