A Hold on Reality
Hold on Reality…a construct of assumptions
Tentative this hold on reality,
for so many live delusions so believed
that the construct becomes achieved,
like a fantasy of truth lived and breathed,
and from who’s eyes do we see?
How does life fit,
within so many delusions of truth,
when at cross-purposes we act,
relying on the facts of known belief,
the approximations of how to be?
What proof have we that reality is uniform,
that what each of us assume,
is not consumed by lies,
the very planned out beliefs
that hold us to our own world?
Perhaps we forgo some aspects
just to attach ourselves tentatively
to everyone else’s reality,
in order to make sense of this conglomerations
of assumptions called life.
How complex our mental renderings of life,
each view a singular facet
of what reality may mean,
and yet we chose to believe unequivocally
the prideful assumptions we accept.
May be reality is so malleable
there is not one definitive fact,
just an incorporation of each and every perception
into a multi-layered acceptance of truth,
a lie we can live with.

Very stirring thoughts there, Tony. I have been told by my nemesis to “face reality”. My reply was : “Whose reality?” I believe each person has their own reality based on what makes them happy and what works for their way of life. I love it when inspired to think deeper. You have a way of prompting that. Well done.
Much appreciated Phyllis, yes I’m always looking deeper, further; its just my curiosity. Glad you enjoyed it.
