People prefer to solicite dogmas for security.
And why shouldn't they? Bound by
the simplicity of opposites, you can
base your efforts in supporting your
truths rather than wondering if they
The truth is a matter of opinion.
People tend to hold their perceptions
of the world to be true, because it's
all someone can hope to have.
But then perceptions differ.
And conflicts begin to simmer
between two truths. Nuances
are called upon to fight for a
good war for the good people.
Because if you choose to
see it in black and white
you can only have two choices.
Once you've chosen, you must justify.
You reason, little being, you justify
to live the little life you live.
Should your justification come
under the attack by a contrast
You will not accept anything but
the truth; it is true because you believe it.
And pride...oh strange pride simply won't allow you to
admit defeat in the face of a lie.
But if you acknowledge
the different scales of
gray you'll realize it's
all a matter of hue;
one saturated opposite
screaming at another
for the sake of security,
I would rather find
myself absolutely insecure
and at the mercy of any possibility
because I can perceive beyond
right and wrong; I don't waste
my time defending something
that has been made for me;
I'd much rather justify my
thoughts through language.
But what do I know.
