Poem -

~ THE LIAR ~

~ THE LIAR ~

More than joyous am I
Content to breathe the air
When, out of the darkness
My lies, my indiscretions,
My soul, is being laid bare
For it is into the light
And into the honesty
Of one's life's misfortunes
Where true baptism,
Is rarely,
Anointed...

Disappointed is he
Who mixes sweet recreation
Together with the lies he's told
For during sound sleep
Where his dreams unfold
The lust, unseen, and unknown
Steals from the world
And in life, unfurls
The creator's most picturesque,
And truly blackened,
Sheep....

The liar is blessed
With God's most
"Close to the vest"
Holy secrets,
Secrets of piracy,
And secrets,
Of trust...

Hey Love...I remember this poem.....The true liar is the one that thinks he gets away with lying to himself....lol  It is in admitting our dishonesty in life experiences that we become more honest and able to discern truth or dishonesty in others. We cannot hide anything from God, and once we realize this, it is worth the determination to follow a path that pleases Him.  Thankfully we usually get many years to practice...lol   Humbling write.  xo Love n Hugs

Hey, Thanx GREG!!...I am always happy when you leave a written comment.... it means I must have struck some chord in you..... and In this case the Trump - Cohen hearings came through those words..... and I agree with you..... he should have gotten a longer sentence.... but hey, at least we got to glimpse some of the bullshit going on behind the scenes in our joke of a GOVERNMENT!!.... Anyway, thanx again brother!!...... Lots of Love to you and yours!!...... smiles......T xo 🐧✴❤

My Dear Tony,

In dreams, I seek forgiveness for my lies
I ask God to make me whole
I beg Him for His sacred love
To cleanse and purify my Soul

Love,
Larry xxx
