Lies to self

Sometimes it is easier to pacify

Yourself by repeating in your head a lie

When the truth is too painful to face

And you know you are stuck in a bad place

Rationalizing the lie that things are good

Is the only way that you know you would

Be able to cope- so you try to trick your mind

Into believing the lie, hoping you would find

Some peace as you raise your hands in resignation

Your learned helplessness lets you cope with the situation…


You learn to live with the lie, but you walk on thin ice

A slight nudge, an insinuation can suffice

To uncover the truth, uncomfortable

This time your self-spoken lies are unable

To trick you away from reality indeed

To break away from the lie is what you need..

Finally you summon the courage to do

What you were actually supposed to!
