‘Lies - Where Souls Die’

A Poem by ‘Thoughts In Time’🌹

Lies, deceit - it’s only youvthat you do cheat🌹

Lies - Where Souls Die 🌹

Lies and deceit
The things
That make
You
Cheat

From your head
To your feet
Dishonest-

What’s it got
In it?

What’s it got
On it?

Can’t see the
Right
For the
Wrong
On it-

Riding
On the bonnet
Of a stolen
Recycled
Scrapped
Piece of transport

Housing every
Wrong thought-

But
It makes me
Chuckle

What has this
For your sanity
Bought-

Your mind
Caught in
The lies
Of time

Too worried
About the
‘Me’
And
‘Mine’

What a total
Waste of time-

Juggling
Of the
Mind-

Corrupt
Form of
Mankind

When will you
See
The sign-

The signs of
The times

Do they not
Trouble your
Mind-

Don’t they make
You want to
Turn your
Life around-
To find
The truth
That you need

To set you free

Free
From the chains
Of insanity
And fleshly
Plans-

Unshackle
Yourself-
You’ve lost
All your
Wealth-
Storerooms
Await-

Golden are the gates

The treasure
Is no
Measure
To the peace
You so seek-

Until you reach
The peak of
Destruction-
You won’t listen
To instruction-

Choices are yours
No matter
The flaws-
You are your
Worst best
Enemy and
Cause-

I wash my hands
Of
Satan’s plans
Your blood
Has been redeemed
It’s not as bad
As it seems
Open your heart
Reach
For your
Dreams.

Your poem describes the trajectory of my life. After my childhood experience of predatory treatment, I went out into the world with predatory intent myself, thinking this was how everyone related to others (added to the influence of the long-ago "age of free love"). It was all about catching the thrill of the moment, more than connecting with someone else's humanity. In your poem, the narrator sounds a little bit preachy, as if it's easy to turn one's life around, so why not do it? Well, I'm here to say that it takes years to undo bad early conditioning, no matter how earnestly one might wish for a new approach to life! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

This read like a rap poem .. was that the intention? I thought it was very effective, and certainly made me sit up and listen. And I hope it made the 'you' listen too! But there is so much hope in the last verse, and I love the last three lines ...Reach For your
Dreams.

you are right
The answers all lie within us. We are what and where we strive to be. Dreams then, just a brief struggle away. Profound speak here. Much appreciated.

You are right dear Kelly.

Most of us need to taste dirt to know. We must change. Thank you for sharing the amazing words and the poetry.

You are welcome dear Kelly.
"You are your
Worst best
Enemy and
Cause-"

True that. Although I suppose there must be a sense of euphoria for the liars to keep on lying and getting away with it, maybe like a drug.
Powerful words here.

Thankyou and yes it’s a form of addiction I guess🌹
dear Kelly... saving souls is a passion...
reminds me of the old movie “Angel and the
Bad Man” starring John Wayne when he was younger. In the movie he was an orphan and raised by Outlaws. When he was running from the law, and got shot, a Quaker family took him in. A most beautiful spiritual movie... so much like your poetry. truly, Pat

Lot's of conviction in this piece, masterfully written!!! My favorite line was
Until you reach
The peak of
Destruction-
You won’t listen
To instruction- How this statement is true for a lot of us, we sometimes wait till things reach the boiling point to turn off the flame ... excellent job!!
