Shakiness in Perception
Creative Corner Edition Nº11 Prompt
But I thought it this way,
No, you were wrong.
How would I know,
That’s what you thought?
That’s the shakiness in perception,
What is black to you is white to me.
This is why most things are grey,
Both are right in equal quantities.
I am right you are wrong,
This battle leads to nowhere but pointless agony.
Perception is a tricky game,
Which is won only if we communicate.
Trust but verify,
Isn’t that what people say?
Sometimes what we perceive is so baffling,
The rational mind goes on a holiday.
Then what we perceive seems like the gospel truth,
If only we stop listening to our ego that blinds us from the truth.
We must know both sides of a story,
For then we can avoid unwanted misery.
Perception is indeed a mind game,
Those that seek the truth survive to tell the real tale.
Thank you Diana C. for another thought-provoking prompt. It made me think that sometimes what we perceive to be the truth is far away from the REAL truth.
