Light reflecting off a lake
the sunset isn't real.
A drop of water is all it takes
to fracture your perception.
Words you have proclaimed,
morals you would never break.
The moment an action causes strain
you disregard, forget, replace.
Shadowy nighttime dream lands
weakened with the passing time.
But just for a moment reality stands
forgotten, displaced by distortions.
To all intents, time is uneven
but the clock will proves each second's equal.
Is there anything left to believe in
If you can be fooled by something so prosaic?
The world is convinced of its reality,
self-righteous, egocentric, arrogant, vain.
Don't become lost in the lies, the sea.
For sooner or later, water always evaporates.
A/N I'm not totally sure if the rhyming is working, please let me know what you think about that.
