?

Everything I tell you is a lie.

Why?

The answer lies in the question itself. And at the same time, it doesn't, for why is not question.

And yet it is.

Why is a question that is always deeper than its answer. For in asking the question why, it is not the answer at the end that we look for, but the journey towards it.

Hence, it is not a question. It is a task, an undertaking, a journey that we must embark upon in order to understand, to fully comprehend.

And sometimes the answer that we look for is not there. Or at least we think it's not there.

But it is. It's there everytime we ask the question, everytime we set upon the journey, for this is where the answer lies.

The journey is the answer.

The question and the answer are one and the same.

And because many can undertake this journey, many will inevitably have their own answer. One may also undertake it and get different answers each time. The answer that you get from the journey is your truth. Yours and yours alone.

Which is why truth and lie are one and the same.

Which is why everything I tell you is a lie.

And the truth.

My truth.

Sometimes Fik the answer just depends on u n not the journey... R u willing to take risk? If u do, it all answers ur questions.

To Anna: Maybe that's why you can't get things out of your head :>

To Anon: Indeed it does. Hence: "And because many can undertake this journey, many will inevitably have their own answer. One may also undertake it and get different answers each time."
