Life - Poem by Terry Searcy

I am a liar and I stand alone
I do not sway or bend
I believe the world, and at it I scoff
The people live their lives and never know the truth
We lift up our voices and cry out to one another
And we don’t hear the word that resonate from each others mouth
Our lives bleed into one another and we don’t know the truth
I hear what they say and I know their words
The leaders have spoken and we believe
We believe because we are weak and they seem strong
We utter words against them only to our self
We tell people we don’t know lies
We tell our children lies so they can enjoy their life for short while
I am a liar and I stand alone

    I believe you might stand alone, not many individuals will admit they are a liar. Strong. (Report) Reply
