Fundamental of Liar Chapter CXLV: Before and After


It's not in the ceremony
But the before and after
We stuck in never ending talk

It's not in the performance
But the before and after
The nervous shots our sense

It's not in the confession
But the before and after
We fear of upcoming rejection 

It's not in the competition
But the before and after
We boiled in rivalry

It's not in the interview
But the before and after
We got the panic attack

It's not in the trip
But the before and after
We engulfed in strange reluctance 

It's not in the test
But the before and after
We haunted by the question

It's not in the trial
But the before and after
We doubting our own action 

It's not in the work
But the before and after
We drown in boredom

It's not in the appointment
But the before and after
We tortured in waiting 

It's not in the birth
But the before and after
We trapped in anxiety

It's not in the success
But the before and after
We struggle to do the best

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
