Truth is an obscure concept.
The response to “I’m telling you the truth” is either ‘another lie has fallen from your lips‘ or ’I believe you, I trust you.’
      - even if the thoughts in the mind of the beholder are truly lies within lies.
And trust; we trust in believing the speeches that beings give out of emotion, yet trust is a concept just as obscure as everything else that beings first evolved decided to create...
      Time, money, the standing superior, the advertisements that weave their way into our
Sight, hearing, touch, smell.
      Love.
Only another chemical reaction in the brain; an emotion once valued so highly that the words “I love you” brought instant tears to the bearer’s eyes.
      We’re losing touch,
Physical and mental grasp of the proportions of the world.
      Media replacing interaction that is longed for, smiles are rare, abuse is everywhere:
On skin, on lips, on mind.
      I’m telling you the truth. Choose your response.
‘Another lie has fallen from your lips‘ or ’I believe you, I trust you.’
Let the chemicals decide.
