Thousand Lies


A picture paints a thousand words
In which depicts a life
I paint my life with a thousand lies
For the truth would cause much strife.

These little lies, I must confess
Provide me no sheer pain
Temporary relief bestows my mind
Nothing to lose or gain.

Day by day I tell a lie
So measly and so white
To tell the truth I couldn't dare
It doesn't seem quite right.

I could try to stop if I want
Tell the truth instead of lie
Yet the lies I've built keep building up
My lies have piled high.

A thousand lies to make my life
A painted vision to see
The life I want the world to know
Even if it isn't me.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
