Fuck Dishonesty

February 4, 2016

We walk with an emptiness deep within

Some look to drugs, some look to gin

Forgiving our souls, we try so hard

Most giving our life to a manufactured scar

One so permanent in a life that fades

Some take in air, some seek the blade

I imagine a life of dreams, a life unseen

And so I am brought downhill, to a calm stream

Though it is shallow, too rocky and jagged to stand

And so I just sit and stare questioning, am I truly a man

I take that stand, looking down river

It gets dark outside, so cold I even shiver

I blanket myself with the comfort of a bridge above

I am alone now, how do I love

People walk by, here and there, over head

I live surrounded by many, but I know inside a void is what’s said

I hate this rhyming shit

Is it life I want to quit

I’m so angry, everything I write about is me

I want to get out of my head, over there I want to be

Everything is I, I, I, over and over, I

Why, why, why, do I write this crybaby, sigh

I hurt, I’m in pain, but am I selfish, am I vain

I want to write about what I see and what I observe

In this world that’s undeniably beautiful, but so absurd

People driving back and forth, focused, but dying

And I just sleep away the shared pain, too tired to be seen crying

Whose lying, fuck dishonesty

It’s the world’s biggest travesty

Be true, be righteous, aim high, be a man, make unselfish plans

Fuck this rhyme, I don’t even understand

Is this what it takes to be good and to be human

To care about this crazy world, that never stops moving
