Timeline

by Loolwa Khazzoom • December 27, 2015 • Songs

Where you draw your timeline
Is a political act
Because there was before that
And before
What appears to be the effect today
Is actually the cause
If you go back far enough
But you lack the
Stamina perspective interest brain power
And so you say
Let’s not complicate matters
When they are in fact
Terribly complicated
Interwoven threads
Tripping all over each other
And so you look at the present
Without actually seeing it
A small sliver of the whole
A distorted sampling
And it satisfies you
Because it fits your belief system
Mirrors your reflection of the world
So you are convinced
You have dug far enough
And you know
The Truth
