I Lie

I lie…

Down with myself in the darkness

Unable to decipher the meaning of my life.

~

I lie…

To myself just as I always have,

Pretending to be something I am not.

~

I lie…

To others by hiding behind a mask and a smile,

Showing them what they want to see not who I am.

~

I lie…

Everytime I deny my dreams their breath

Leaving them to choke in the pool of my mind.

~

Is stifling our hopes and dreams truly living,

Making the unsatisfying our lifes work?

Were we not born to rise to our own vision of greatness

Not for financial gain alone, but for our God given passions sake?

~

I lie…

But I am trying to bury my fears,

Trying to live the dreams that I was born to realize.
