Poem: Impressions

Impressions

The truth is untruths are true in the truth of a situation,

The eyes see what they want to see,

Take a snapshot carelessly,

Which becomes a fragment of imagination.


The truth dissolves through multiple filters,

What is supposedly the purest solution,

Undergoes reactions and preconceived notions,

Forming accidental conclusions.


Judge an impression, you can make blame,

But can we say we haven't done the same,

Change when the pressure is heavy,

Or change to be ready and steady.
