Dishonesty

musings
Time will inevitably uncover dishonesty and lies; history has no place for them.

There was a time when I believed

Everything that people said

Everywhere, transparency I perceived

Between the lines I never read

Inexperienced was I in the world’s ways

Oh how I wish I had had some insight

I wish I had not spent precious days

Believing lies while truth was in plain sight.

Alas when I learnt about deception

That did surround me in clever disguises

Not only did it alter my perception

It did introduce me to similar vices…

I learnt to lie, myself  I had to save

Being secretive I had to learn to be

I learnt to put up a front brave

Trying to hide my dishonesty.

**

How I sometimes wish I could have remained

As simple and guileless as I had been

I wish from lying I could have refrained

If only deception I had never seen!

**

I want to confess my sins today

Sleep has been snatched by my conscience

All I want to do is kneel and pray

For all my lies, I am suffering the consequence.
