Some Lies - Poem by Barry Van Allen

Within the rythymic rhyme,
there LIES a reason,
it is there between the lines,
but, lost within the seasons.

Between their poems,
and their writings,
'twixt the stories and the sightings,
past the legends and the lightning,
LIES the truth!

Truely everchanging,
each life is rearranging,
making better do,
that is what your work,
might do for you...
There LIES success!

It is so simple,
you enjoy it,
you may really feel you know it,
until your back is stabbed,
by the only one that never would,
and she LIES to you,
for your own good!

We hear those LIES throughout our lives,
sometimes we believe them,
some we don't!
At other times we just don't care,
because so many LIES have lead us there,
we won't even trust a lying rug, to stay there!

    I wonder if there's any truth to the story that we get what we give? ? Truthfully Barry....I like this one...I'll mull it over a few times of course...but I like it...
    Hugs,

    Lies are like a toothache; and to tell you the truth, which a liar won't do, there's no more pain to it... when I pull it out. (Report)Reply
