Do not tell me… Do not tell me…
Because when you tell me, you do not tell me.
As if words don’t roam from ear to ear
And you manage to stay complacent
as if I never herd it
But I exhume it
What a shame, but I am prudent
I leave you to ruin.
People are of no virtue
Not realizing how the smallest of words could hurt you
The surfeit of lies we use to cajole our lives
We would rather live a life of deception
Not realizing what’s happening
The truth is a stranger and we are the fool
Falling like the young leaf that never bloomed
Hanging in our web of lies
Harbored in our own minds
We neglect and contort the truth
Then pretent it as true
We piffle and lay addled
What a heinous way to live
The way we live
Is it not true?
Or you still avert the truth
And deny to lie not knowing what is true
Until the very end when you realize it all came back to you.
