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 lies he's told
For during sound sleep
Where his dreams unfold
The lust unseen, unknown
Steal from the world
And in life unfurl
The creator's most picturesque
And blackened
Sheep...

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

Hey T....It is when lies and hidden motivations/secrets are brought to light to God, that we find grace in that release...for He already knows our hearts, and we cannot hide a thing from him...I guess when we admit to ourselves our deceptions, we can deal with them and live under grace instead of shame.  That is what I think of anyway....The liar can fool everyone except for themselves...lol  Great theme, T.  I like the line, "The Creator's most picturesque and blackened sheep.".....no one is perfect..lol  Love n Hugs, xo

What, a word, to end. Trust,
There is light, in being able to see, in the eyes of a stranger....help.
There, lies the over-riding ambition, of a force for good. Shown in each, that, is worthy.
There, in the heart and soul is the yearning, to produce better. For, those to come. :) :)
LIVE, TO LEARN. TO, MAKE BETTER OF, IT. TO, DISCOVER, MORE.
And, enjoy, it.  :)

I think you have a very unrivaled style my friend.
aside from just sheer versatility in both form, and
content, you have a way of tapping into an ancient,
inner voice, and making that voice your own.

my eternal applause for this one.

your friend.
