Lies

I apologise.
For I am not
All that I claim to be.

I am many people,
To many people.
Not one being
Any more real
Than the other.

I didn’t have to be this way
I was meant to be normal.
That’s what I couldn’t accept.
That’s why I couldn’t just be.

The lies run so deep
They’re real.
And that is why I apologise
To myself.

You have developed a good philosophy at a very tender age. Good work. Go ahead. This world- full of lies To liberate though he cries, But remember you Guys Your inner being never dies. Oh threats of hell & hopes of paradise One thing is certain and the rest is lies, The flower that once has bloomed for ever dies. Have you gone through my other poems? Please comment. Regards- Pradeep
In this world of hypocrisy, many times we act like this, though our inner conscience says what we say or do is not correct. Can't help it and no regrets.
This is such a frank poem, sometimeswe lie to ourselves, maybe cause we're afraid of admitting the truth.
a really beautiful poem with smooth flow of words.anybody can enjoy this.
I am sure you are more than what you claim to be... a greater poet to be; and that cannot be a lie..... Your flow with the words are very smooth. Good writing and deserves all the votes that are there....
