TRUTH by Johnny Toss
Everything revolves around a "truth" but the truth is not something established although it is pretended to be.
The truth or our truth depends on how we perceive the universe, something can be true and not be true at the same time. Truth is a word invented and deformed by humanity. It's like the absolute shackle of what you must believe to not to be outside. To absorb and to project our truth on a galaxy is the way to make that truth universal, it is the way to break with established norms and be a rational part of the nothingness of that truth that represents us.
Truth is the biggest lie that we have believed.
What is your truth?
