Truth doesn't run on time like a commuter train, though time may run on truth. And the Scenes Gone By and the Scenes to Come flow blending together in the sea-green deep while Now spreads in circles on the surface.
The truth doesn't have to do with cruelty, the truth has to do with mercy.
It's still hard for me to have a clear mind thinking on it. But it's the truth even if it didn't happen.
