The Truth

Stillness in the truth,
strengthens the soul.
Whispers begin 
trying to take a hold.

Listen carefully,
as you walk a straight line.
Falling forever
into the sublime.

Wind chimes lie
frozen in the wind.
Melodies deny
as they never begin.

Eyes deceive,
shooting stars don't exist.
Always believe,
as dreams start to twist.

Butterfly's fly,
never lifting off the ground.
Hero's keep trying,
at the speed of sound.

Water drops fall,
bouncing into thin air.
Hearts remain open,
only closing if they dare.

Reality is fake,
remaining the truth.
Watch the ocean turn green,
as the waves remain blue.
