Belief is a powerful thing,
despite truth, despite what it brings,
belief blinkers our view,
and in context gathers opinion
until we assimilate and strengthen our belief,
it approximates truth and is held as such.
One cannot argue with such belief,
for it is dogmatic, and prohibits expansion,
certainly not changed by reason,
and our assessments fall on deaf ears,
as a foundation has been set
and from that perspective there is nothing to vet.
Bias then reigns in minds convinced,
and those believers spout reasons and defense
for every question posed, every alternative,
but the blind will not see,
and from one perspective the same reality thrives,
derives nothing more than the lies it abides.
Truth is malleable, in continued flux,
for it is our ability to see it that evolves,
and as perspective broadens
and belief losses footing,
a far greater reality open up into view,
and we then realize our own limitations.
We may invest faith,
hope truth is what we feel, but in the end
if not all sides are known, we are left wanting,
deception so easily manipulated
in our hope for betterment,
but being objective and informed is no easy task.
Today those who control this world,
have a highly technological media
in which to impart lies or truth, with proof,
all orchestrated for some political advantage,
none of which we are personally privy to
or will be in most cases.
We are simply the masses,
wanted under control by any means,
by leaders who assert personal agendas
in all they do, and from those who control them,
in a multi-layered conspiracy of manipulation.
This is the unfortunate state of this world.
