All I Need To Sleep At Night

A Poem by JP142000

This is the issue
It kind-of makes me sick 
All your lies and your deception
And you get away with it 
People choose to believe you and your outrageous lies 
While all I've ever done was tell the truth 
Which got dirt kicked in my eyes 

How can someone be so callous?
How can someone be so cold?
You have had the world handed to you before you were ever old
And how can this make you happy?
Deceiving people so
Or is it that your so miserable that this is the only way you know?

I don't understand why they trust you after everything you have done 
You have given no reason to 
Still i'm out numbered 
The rest of the world to one 

Maybe one day they will see you
For who you really are
Or maybe they will stay blinded and you will become another star

No matter what happens 
I will know I was always right
Your games never worked on me 
And that is all I need to sleep at night

You sound wounded.. Like someone hurt you and that wound was never mended. It reminds me of still waters that rage under the surface. I'm dying to know what the rest of the story is. Thank you for sharing.
