Deception

Deception

A Poem by Monster ^.^

Which is better?
To deceive or be deceived?
Such undoubted illusions
in our lives have been weaved...

Dog eat dog world;
Barks worse than bites;
To decide they are metaphors,
in this world, is that right?

What lies have been told,
black or white...
Doesn't really matter,
They are lies, in despite.

But then, let's turn tables,
And differ from what's perceived...
Which is worse?
To deceive or be deceived?

deception is an evil, no matter which side of the street we play it from. there are those who have perfected the art of deception and, through such, derive great power, wealth or pleasure...so i think this is worse...to deceive at the expense or fate of others...we can usually get beyond being deceived through grace and perseverance...but a deceiver is doomed to suffer the consequences of his actions, eventually. this write is excellent...it is indeed thought provoking and resonant. well penned, monster!

Neither is good.
"Which is worse?
To deceive or be deceived?"
To be the receiver of the deceive or be the deceiver. A bad place to be. I believe we pay for every sin. Deceivers will pay in three-fold. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry my friend.

Loved it! Relation, metaphors, ryhming, rythm, and all! Great job! Where you began with "which is better" and closed with "which is worse" really shows the questions you conveyed through the poem along with your comparisons :)

I just love this wholehearted expression or plight to, 'do the right thing', to cognitiviely settle what is wrong and all that niggles you, in life, with firmly rational abilites to debate ill doings
In answer to you last question, well I would rather not decieve or be decieve, infact the very question, serves as a warning sign of what precisely one must avoid doing...........

Everyone finds themselves on each side at some point - a good question to ponder, which side is worse. I guess that depends on the condition of one's conscience. A provocative write - excellent!

True! One wouldn't know how bad each side is if one hasn't been through them! Or if they are saying .. read more
If there is a conscience within that individual, I believe to deceive would feel worse... the act of betrayal can sink in further when realizing the hurt caused so much pain by their actions... Intriguing write! :)

Very true! Very true! and thank you for such kind words :)
choices between two evils... hmmm..
to be real, I prefer to be the deceiver rather than the deceived. but i do hope that i won't be confronted with such choices. this piece made me think.

An honest answer. Indeed, many say it's wrong to do either, but actions are always the real thing..... read more

Thanks! That's so kind of you :)
JS,

I read the first stanza - paused, thought a sec... changed it. Smiled - thought about where I would take the thought. Then read the second stanza - listened... then the third and finally the last. It isn't up to me or anyone else to like another's thoughts - though we can and often do. But it IS up to us to LISTEN to others' thoughts - thats part of being adult - for better OR worse.
