    Deceit, such an ugly word

    It’s when people cant believe a word that they’ve heard


    When our gambling we’ve tried to hide

    It’s hard to remember how much we’ve lied


    Lies of fact  – “I Wasn’t there” 

    “I didn’t gamble”  I didn’t care.


    Deciet though has many forms,

    Those lies of fact are just one of it’s norms


    For all the times that we may have lied

    Another deceit is the things that we hide


    The bills, the letters and those debts

    Hiding the mail, feeling closed in by the net


    Hiding the statements, all bank accounts

    If they know that we gamble. we cant say the amount


    There comes a time though it all closes in

    And true recovery can only begin


    When we replace our lies, and all that deceit

    And replace them with two words that are the opposite


    Honesty and openness might be hard to do

    But they help a lot and are prettier too.



    At the core of all deception
    Lies a lack of self reflection
    On our attitudes, behaviours and beliefs.
    False interpretation and irrational correlation
    Lead to lies, illusions, notions and deceit.
    ‘Til you overcome this practice
    And pursue alternate tactics
    Such as openness, awareness and clear truth
    You will need to seek contrition
    Accept change and opposition
    To a lifestyle you decided to create
    When you chose then, to continue
    The deceit that lay within you
    And resigned to attribute it to “fate”.
    Call it lies, untruth or rumour
    We know that we just humour
    Our illusions when we try to fabricate.
    But before we try to figure ways to stop this growing bigger
    Let’s be honest with each other and ourselves
    Even though the truth may hurt us-(lies will make our lives seem worthless)
    Let’s get ready for self searching and deep delves!


    love your poem, Charles.
