Lies (Curtal Quatrain) - Poem by Leslie Alexis

Many things there are which traverse the man,
But there’s one that can break the strongest ties.
It’s not thievery or brutal murder,
But simple lies.

When loved-ones deceive, with a gaze and tongue
-Bringing to rubbles kinships’ candid bond.
The heart neglects love and the mind those it
Considered fond.

Then we know real pity, when with his breath
Sons betray moms, -who took them to manhood-
And lovers break vows – bringing help to none.
There is no good

In a tongue that’s corrupted with venom
That is made in fire, shaped and wielded bent.
Such a soul would never see his way, and
Needs to repent!
