Refraction

Truth and reality,

when filtered through the lens of experience

are refracted and dispersed.

 

Perception is confused,

many witnesses bear disparate testimony,

each sure their own senses have not been fooled.

 

We may try to understand another’s sentiment,

squinting past our own,

imagining the colour they see.

 

Sometimes we are so distracted by our own convictions,

that we become convinced we see all there is,

and so miss the full possibilities of the spectrum.

 

Once split in such a way,

is there a way for truth to be recovered, redistributed,

Or are we destined to remain colour-blind?
