“Truth is always stranger than fiction. We craft fiction to match our sense of how things ought to be, but truth cannot be crafted. Truth is, and truth has a way of astonishing us to our knees. Reminding us, that the universe does not exist to fulfill our expectations. Because we are imperfect beings who are self-blinded to the truth of the world’s stunning complexity, we shave reality to paper thin theories and ideologies that we can easily grasp – and we call them truths. But the truth of a sea in all it’s immensity cannot be embodied in one tidewashed pebble.”

I’m drowning,
in the imperfection,
of a perfect world.

I’m dying,
in the insanity,
of a sane reality.

I’m falling,
in the shattered shards,
of a whole universe.

I’m constricted,
in these prison walls,
of a liberate realm.

I’m overwhelmed,
from all this incongruity,
Nothing is truly something,
Something means nothing at all.

I’m disconcerted,
they tell me I’m not normal,
but what is typical,
when the ordinary is so unusual.

I’m realizing,
nothing is truly something,
and so-called “normality”,
is just a stupid technicality.

I’m understanding,
you must unravel the truth,
and uncover the network of lies.

I’m learning now,
that you must double-check reality,
to see it’s just one more illusion.

I know now,
That in this warped actuality,
of inconsistent consistencies,
you must contradict the contradictions.
