The Poetry Bar


Lying is supposed to be bad, innit?
Then how come lies are so very common?
Everyday filled with lies, every minute.,
From sinners to priest, corrupts to lawman.
We’re supposed to speak truth but examen;
Everyone is speaking nothing but lies.
Like a secret that has now been let on,
now all of them know and all of them hide.
But sometimes to look at the other side,
may actually be a salvation.,
for we all have our own meaningless pride.
And some things are not for conversations.
So how do we not become the bad guy?
We cry. Then sigh. We die and then we lie.

This is such a powerful piece on lying. It brings out the truth (haha) about lying and forces the reader to face it–face the things that probably they themselves have been running away from. Impactful work!

Thank you so much for your insight. I totally agree with you.
The only truth is that everyone lies. 😅
Please check out my blog for more of my poems. 🙂
