Poetry

People Lie

Via Steve Snodgrass on Flickr

I wrote this poem while feeling cynical about human motives for things. The poem is intended to be read from the top down as well as the bottom up.

People lie

Because

They fear

The truth is

Unkind

All people are

Afraid that

They will be

Unkind too

Maybe because they are

They have been broken

So many times

They are hurt

Whenever

They try to trust someone

For too long

Because

People lie
