Not a peaceful thing.

Truth is not a peaceful thing.
Truth can be unkind.
I wish it was a made-up thing
I made up in my mind.

But truth is laws that can't be broke
and truth is oh, so not a joke.
Truth like love goes deep inside
and changes you forever.

It's worth, they say, a love that's lost,
but knowing comes at such a cost.
It breaks your heart and frees your mind.
It's easier to stay blind.

Truth is not a peaceful thing.
It tears apart my myths.
But I choose freedom over peace,
reality over bliss.

Trust in the universe.

                                                            Trust in the universe,
                                                               she bleated at me.

This universe,
                                                                   in which you are a speck
                                                      on a planet,
                                                                        which is a speck
                                                                                                    in a galaxy,
           which is a speck
       in a universe
                                   which is one of many,
                                                                all of which
                                                   could be swallowed
                                                                                                                 by a black hole,
                                                                        this universe
                                                                                       will take time out
                                                                                       from its concerns
                                                    with expansion
                                       and orbits
                                                                             and gravity
                                         and other laws of physics,  

                                                                             and somehow arrange
                                                          to right your wrongs,
                                                  or grant your wishes,
                    or turn red lights to green,
                                or treat you like the queen
                                                                             you are.

                                  Or not.
