And So It Appears

And So It Appears



Things are not always

as they appear,

we interpret the scene,

while the facts are unclear.

And say this appears

to be this or that,

as we swallow a camel

while straining a gnat.


What source is true

where lies our trust,

in opinions and rumors

or men made of dust?

Perhaps those in lab coats

with their “expert” decrees,

can assure us we really

see what we see.


We all exercise faith

in some source of news

and there is no denying

that colors our views,

to the point we believe

there is no wrong or right,

except what we choose

to be true in our sight.


 J. Christopher White


“And the serpent said to the woman, “You surely

Shall not die! For God knows that in the day that

you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you

will be like God, knowing good from evil.”

Genesis 3:4-5
