Reality is only a perspective

Here’s a Retourne

what happened was experience

what we remember are tales

we told ourselves about it

they go on to become beliefs

 

what we remember are tales

what we saw, what we heard

what we touched, how we felt

in frameworks of our choice

 

we tell ourselves about it

repeat the story many times

with new details added

till it becomes a new reality

 

they go on to become beliefs

reality is only a perspective

believers shape the world around them

in tales they told themselves
