The Truth By Sarah Masson

A Poem - © Sarah Masson 2011

You are doused in deceit

Dripping with lies

Strong on the surface

Weak when it came to goodbyes

You are filled with anger

Hate seeps into every bone

You always wanted everything

But also want to be alone

You are covered with greed

Envy from head to toe

You might fool everyone else

But I will always know

You are saturated with selfishness

And that will never leave you

You’re always going to be the same

No matter what you do

You are marinating in the truth

But always push it away

You can’t ignore it forever

It will come to find you someday

You are drenched in self loathing

You bathe in despicable ideas

You are tough on the exterior

But I know of all your fears

How wonderful, to create something so deep and penetrating into ones very being. I voted this up, there is a very sad sort of almost beauty hidden in here. Loved it! A.B.
