Self Deceit

We say we love
when we lost.
We frown when praised
deep inside we ‘re elated.
We breathe
but say we ‘re dead.
At the point of death
we shout “ I ‘m alive”.
In suffering we claim to enjoy.
the rich cry of hardship.
We lie to ourselves knowing we ‘re lying
convincing ourselves that we ‘re not,
believing we ‘re not.
Yet we know the truth-
this an endemic.
