The Power of a Lie

Exploring a new perspective! πŸ™‚



It embraces me like the warmth of a cup of tea,

Staying by my side everytime I stagger;

Like that monsoon rain touching the Earth aching with a raspy pleasure,

It holds my hand as the intergalactic wind threatens my puny existence;Β 

A Lie never breaks, as it crawls its way into lives,

The messiah of mankind!

The friend of a poor father’s soul,

As he lulls his little one to slumber,

And speaks of gold and riches,

A future he seeks, a future dipped in the hues of his dreams;

An old mother’s close companion,Β 

As she sits near the door, waiting with her impatient eyes,

For the ones she holds dear, for the ones she calls her life;

They paint the world red with truth, a colour they say can ever fade away,

But a Lie seeps out right through, a friend that never disappears;

A protector, a peer, the saviour of a hundred tears,

Its shield’s like titanium, barring the stench of Reality from plaguing a thousands wishes.

  1. I recently, like yesterday discovered a lie..it was brutal…more so because I did not want to believe it is true…and even more so, because they believe it is truth.

  2. There is beauty in truth, even if it’s painful. Those who lie, twist life so that it looks tasty to the lazy, brilliant to the ignorant, and powerful to the weak. But lies only strengthen our defects. They don’t teach anything, help anything, fix anything or cure anything. Nor do they develop one’s character, one’s mind, one’s heart or one’s soul.

    1. Agreed. But sometimes a lie can make one to go on with his life..only a heads up, and then it becomes normal again under the bliss of truth..
      But sometimes a lie is disastrous, tearing lives apart..and I’m definitely not referring to those in this poem here… πŸ™‚
