the lie

Image

 

the resistance

will cease

if you make it

conscious

 

eroding away

glacial lengths

of time

etches in

 

holding back

time and lies

cracks appear

daily now

 

resisting words

thoughts, feelings

truths & realities

i lie for the liar

 

resisting is like

the air i breathe

knowing no

difference

 

trudging and pushing

further away

from the truth

and the pain

 

wading in to

the river

of my

perception

 

eddying and

crashing into

rocks and

undertows

 

this i am used to

i know how to

struggle and

keep it up

 

exhausted from

the stories

hiding from

the lies

 

at this point

i’m the only one

i’m hiding from

and lying to

 

no one cares

where i’m from

or what

i’ve been through

 

the past

doesn’t make

me who

i truly am

 

the lies

never dictated

the truth

never once

 

i resist

out of habit

i resist

not knowing better

 

like i can

hold back

the ocean

with my tiny self

 

within this body

lies a lifetime

worth[y]  of

agony and pain

 

things i came

to believe

words that

i made true
