A Lie - Poem by Fiona O'Connor

I find we lie
to ourselves
more often than
we care
to admit
we tell ourselves
it will work out
faults can be fixed
habits can be broken
mountains can be moved
and seas of tears evaporated
into thin air

As time goes on
and we keep pushing
those mountains that
don't budge
no matter how much they swear they
will move tomorrow
they don't
we give up
mou ntains
and seas

we look back
and see how ridiculous
we had been
blinded by emotions
we lied
