Not a lot of precursor to this poem. I wrote it to kind of deal with those moments n your life you lie to yourself and how you eventually feel coping with the truth of the matter. Thanks for reading.
A Little Lie
Told myself a little lie,
That grew greater in the telling.
Soon enough time did pass,
Even I believed the selling.
Thought my chance for happiness,
Was waiting there for me.
A foolish thought for such as I,
To blinded by dishonesty.
Could have seen that turn of fate,
To find some blessed progress.
In the end I found the answer,
And all that could have been, regress.
Colors shined into my world,
A spectrum seen through hooded eyes.
In truth the world is black and white,
Shaded by a false disguise.
Now I bare the truth to heart,
Wiser for such wear.
Won't let myself get fooled again,
I couldn't take more despair.
Say goodbye to all that mattered,
Hello to what what does not,
Shoulder now the truth to burden,
A hope one day this lies forgot.
End of Line.
