    Things are not what they seem...
    There are wheels within wheels;
    Turning,
    What turns to turn;
    Things are not what they seem...
    There are fires within fires;
    Burning,
    What burns to burn;

    But in the end will you know,
    What will you have to show;
    The only truth is that there will be lies,
    And even the scribes are sometimes blind;
    The only thing that remains the same,
    Is the only thing that is change;
    Turning what turns to turn;
    Burning what burns to burn;
    Things are not what they seem...

    I like the way this piece flowed, like the wheels of uncertainty.

    this is da truth n then some

    people's pain and struggle
    invisible to the naked eye
    someone who seems happy
    might really be dying inside
    their past hidden
    under the surface
    only to shine
    occasional glimpses
    so their behavior
    a painful mystery
    you can't tell by looking
    you can't tell by looking
    what's inside
    what someone else is thinking
    things aren't what they seem
    sometimes you don't even know how it seems :)
