(Defined by What We Perceive)

Rick Imamoto - 21 January 2004


keep in mind I'm not out to deceive
reality is defined by what we perceive
with the resulting ideas that we may conceive
determined by what we've chosen to believe
as karma decides what we shall receive

there is always more
that we don't know about
and more to what makes sense
than what we sometimes doubt

so many prayers we never hear
so much beauty we never see
so many delusions manifested from fear
keep us from being
what we're born to be

expectations are completely unnecessary
because on this planet everything is temporary
within every life nature rearranges
to balance out the constant changes

opinions may be formed
judgments may be passed
maybe things will be changing fast
after all is said and done
Truth is the only thing that shall last
