Lying To Cover Up Lies

Poem By Tom Maxwell

Our world seem to produce, more thieves & liars everyday,
they will gain your trust, with their games,
then stab you in the back, as they run away.

Not caring about anything in life, except to win at their game,
they don't have a conscience, always an excuse,
someone else to blame.

Using any body, or taking anything,
to get what they want for themselves,
lying to cover up lies, what a waste of time, they really need help.

Spending so many hours, looking for another victim,
they work hard at it everyday, thinking they are so smart,
their always broke, some don't even have a home to stay.

Trying to support their habits, or get what they want,
for their daily fix, they will do anything,
for a few hours of pleasure, that gives them their kicks.

They can never get ahead, always falling farther behind,
They don't have a clue about the real world,
others are so for gone, it seems they lost their mind.

Not caring for their children, family & friends,
who are honest, the people they should love and trust,
so many die young, or end up the subject of a bust.

No life long friendships,
because of their plots and schemes,
never feeling the gifts, a true friend can bring.

Someday they will be hurting, and will need a honest friend,
to help them with their needs,
only then they will realize what they lost, for all their greed.

Everything Works Together

Think about those worms, that wiggle through the land,
they loosen up the soil, so the roots of plants, can expand,

Those plants give off oxygen, to support life on this earth each day,

Dreams & Plans

When you want, something new in your life,
You must be open, to change,
You can't' just rely on others,
To follow, and rearrange.

Look Past The Stars

Many times, when we are lost,
We look up, to stare at the sky,
All we can see, are the clouds, passing by,
Never giving a thought of, other planets, up so high.

Friends That Touch Our Heart

We use to be close, always together,
Shared good times, and helped each other, through bad weather.
There were few days, you would see us apart,
We had a friendship that connected, right from the start.

Always Listen

Always Listen

We create our own ambitions,
Convincing ourselves, what we would like to achieve,


I made it to my 60's still doing ok,
Changing identity, another time, along the way.
Who you are, is what you actually do every day,
The natural habits, you automatically sway to,
