To Receive a Feather

Truth is such a solid thing

A story that can not be reversed or

Modified, for if you change it

The truth becomes a lie

Lies are such fickle things

Tales that can be told again

Each time different, each word crafting

Yet another batch of lies

Isn't it amusing?

There can be so many lies

But only one truth

The truth

And the truly startling fact is

No one ever knows this truth

We reach for it

We run at it

Arms open

We grab our wings

Only to find that all we receive

Is a feather
