I lie to myself. . .often

i tell myself like a mantra that it's okay

that's how it is supposed to be

this is good for you


But deep-down underneath those lies is the real me

the honest thoughts i wish to say yet don't

because they'll cause me the grief i suppress

on purpose since i put myself in this exact position


I'm responsible for this pain of what i thought would be good for me but it's not

i'm inadvertently hurting myself with what i believed was going to help

i am my own destruction.


-truth of lies
