You don’t have to choose the dark place

 

Why are you hiding?

Why sneak around?

What are you scared of;

And can’t say out loud?

Why are you playing games?

Who are you trying to kid?

No good ever came

From telling fib after fib

 

Deception is a very dark place

A desolate space

Filled with fear, dread and waste

Burdens and disgrace

Why feed that deceit

And the hell it entreats

When you could come clean

And give your soul peace.
