The Lie


A lie
Requires intention
A deliberate attempt to deceive
Yet there was none
No deliberate intention

A fearful youth
Convinced by herculean strength alone
He could bar the gates of his being
Deluded that with Samson’s strength
Could grind his passions small

The youth lied to himself
His was the deliberate attempt
To deceive himself
An inconvenient truth
He lived his false impression

His intentions four ring bound
Gave meaning to his struggle
Not to mislead
Yet still despite intention
Herculean strength bowed and buckled

  1. Always an internal struggle. Facing the truth can sometimes be a lifetime's journey. :-)
