Pain Of Lies Poem by Rose Marie Juan-austin

Pain Of Lies

Rating: 5.0

They weave lies
And distort the truth
Layers of lies thrown
To humiliate and persecute

Act like a hammer
Left you battered
And life totally shattered

Prosecuted with the bang
Of a gavel
And caged in a metal box
On account of the lies
They had deeply sworn

Life reduced to nothing
But nothing
Honor besmirched
And looked upon
Like a piece of dirt

It’s a pragmatic write, lovely expression Rose! I would love to quote last 4 lines here: “Life reduced to nothing/But nothing/Honor besmirched/And looked upon/Like a piece of dirt”. I like your sweet pieces of poetry so tantalizing! I would certainly love to read many more new poems days ahead emanating from your sparkling pen! God bless you.

Life reduced to nothing But nothing besmirched And looked upon Like a piece of dirt.Impact of besmirching. Lies are a sort of plugging the flow of peace and love of the victim. Very good poem on a sensitive issue
