Caught Between The Truth And A Lie

Poem By Matthew Holloway

Caught between the truth and a lie
I've been led astray
gave my hand to a merry dance
and swayed to what I perceived
as an honest appraisal of life
found myself believing at will
whatever came across my way
when enough visor was offered
religion and public opinion
which has long since been divided
by the strength of their sales pitch
has come into the state of play
I've succumb to both at times
and left wondering exactly why
fool me once and shame on me
fool me again and I've a lesson to learn
third time can never bare any charm
after that there is no help
perhaps hope is fleeting as well
but what is true at the end of the day
but a lie away from what I believe

Comments about Caught Between The Truth And A Lie

Nicely said Matthew. There are so many 'designer religions' out there today but I believe that the relationship between you and God should be a personal one. He has said that..'I am your ONLY not call anyone else teacher..' He will show you Truth if you allow Him to...and amazing things He has to show! ! 2 Timothy 4: 3 3 For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. And that is EXACTLY what is happening. What better way for the dark one to drag people from the Truth but to cause so many different beliefs so doubt will seep in.

Alone in a stately mansion
With all the trappings of wealth
A king resides here
Within his gilded cage

Sometimes I like to try
Curl into a bottle and hide
From those thoughts about me
Those thoughts which haunt
