When I was a child,

they all said to me:

 

Lies

are an escape from the world.

 

Only the weak

take shelter in it.

 

You should never

live in a world of lies.

 

Lies can show

the world how you wish

life to be.

 

They show

ideals.

Wishes.

 

They protect.

They hurt.

They save.

They kill.

 

A liar’s world

is filled with dangers.

 

A mistake

will send it crashing down.

 

Killing

the occupant within.

 

But…

 

If it lives,

the occupant

is happy

ignorant.

 

Willing to drown

within the lies

 

He created

for himself.
