Shades of Truth


You are searching for the absolute truth
relentlessly trying to find why he parted ways?
and when you are unable to find the reasons you take a self-exile hiding in a shell

You portray the vivid imagery of a lost soul,
running helter-skelter without much respite,
you remain in self-denial,
blaming your thoughts for the vacuum
that has unceremoniously shadowed your face

And regardless of what the world says,
you are adamant to reveal the bitter truth,
but you’re naive,
for the truth is always a perspective
hidden between different shades of gray
