Truth vs Fact

What's the difference between real and what's proven?

Fact is something shown to all and supported.

Truth is something that is simply there in either physical state or virtual form in the mind.

Imaginations, flashbacks, beliefs, memory, and ideas, are considered truth.

Without truth, a poem sounds like a scientific report.

With truth, the poem explains how the foot touches the sole of a leather boot and how it crushes the dry leaves and mulch on the soil that gives out a smell, it then asks one to recall whether memory in the past or a mental construct that has never happened or has yet to happen.

At times, if you need to make a choice between fact and truth, 
go with the latter.
