We hear only what we want to,
And dismiss the rest as rumours or lies,
We want to hear the good stuff,
only what tickles our fancy and makes our imagination roam…
We don’t want to hear reality, truth…
it’s mostly bitter, nothing we desire to hear.
We would rather settle for half truth which gives us that bitter-sweet effect…
but nonetheless not truth.
