The Little Lies




Some are worthy, some are not

Round and round we go

If the past rules the present

It’s the little lies that grow

If your burdens break the bank

Tis a fracture in the soul


Some have mercy, some do not

Tit for tat you take

Smile and wish all sinners well

Do it just for heaven’s sake

Good folk never count the sins

With a hello and a handshake


Some will bleed, some will not

Rattle rattle goes the cage

Let your victim write the story

Watch her read every page

Plead with that of man’s regret,

Will I never earn my wage?


Some will love, some cannot

Fear is their plight

They’ll take all you have to give

Leave you longing for the night

You’ll tell yourself it’s all your fault

He’ll let you believe you’re right

Hunted by the grief that seeks your soul,

Longing for the whys, the need to know,

Don’t give up, it’s almost light…
