Alive - Poem by billy dillon

Questions and Answers
Facts and Lies
So many people with invisable smiles
It began long ago, my discovery of not
Disecting the stories, removing the rot
The years of pretence, i was forced to relive
My lies were like seeds, held back by a sieve
I now seemore clearly, the clouds have rolled by
I dropp to my knees
Look up to the sky
Forgive me all, for i was alone
Like a man on the streets, looking for home
I have researched my feelings
I have looked in the lake
The person i see now
Is the one i can make
