The Lie That Is Within

-

"I'm becoming the people that judge me"

Seems to be my only quoted answer

When I know that all the filth of doubt

Never seems to be my disgrace

But I can siege the judgment

And find the coping matters

That dilly dally only question

And have no others defined

But the rest of my uncanniness

And slip down as rain

My burden is empty

And my heart had to swallow

All the pieces

And began to fall down on my lap

In tears and not thoughts
