Let my lies prevail

Let my lies prevail

Can I claim that the lies of my life,

Have soiled my heart?

Or have they restored hope,

To initiate a refreshing start?

Will I ditch my lies,

And embrace my raw truths?

Or will I let go the truths,

A friend so uncouth?

Are my lies beguiling, bewitching,

My desired alternative tale?

Or are they my chosen weapon,

To muffle my inner wails?

Are those dreams, woven around my lies,

Should be uprooted at the first chance?

Or will I sustain them a little,

To perform an ecstatic dance?

Have my lies impeded my growth,

Derailed my life’s focus?

Or have they liberated me,

From my painful past?

.

The thing is, my friends, I am a bit in love with my lies.

As they may not be rewarding, but they shower respite.

For I am not a knight in quest of the holy grail-

So let me live a little bit, let my lies prevail.
