    . Ourselves

    The world is filled with temptation.
    The heart is filled with desires.
    The eye’s is filled with it own truth.
    The mind is on the breaking point of sane and insanity.

    We are only human.
    We are only creatures, neither light nor dark.
    We are only ourselves.

    Some wear mask to defeat others.
    Some wear mask to defeat themselves.
    Some wear mask to hide who they really are.

    Here is the point where we must decide in our life where we stand.
    For trust and love and kinship of your blood will be tested.

    First was the temptation.
    Then it sets with desires.
    Afterwards either the truth or lies are spun.
    And to the last who shall stand brave or break under the weight.

    We speak of truth when behind us is nothing but woven lies, and hearts full of deceit.
    Can you not see the hypocrite side of us?
    Ha! It wounds me to known this, even more that I am one of those.

    Take heed and resist or be forgotten with all others.
    For in this life there is only good or evil, light and darkness, the possible and impossible.

    Such is us.
    Such is you.
    Such is me.

    Our world is filled with temptation.
    Our hearts is filled with desires.
    Our eye’s is filled with what we wish to see.
    Our mind’s is filled with things that can make and break us.

    Seems like you've been digging deep within WindWind -- Introspective piece of poetry here.

    I suppose if we are not the ones spreading those woven lies, our hearts full of deception, then we are okay. I suppose (as well) that each of us holds a certain hypocrisy (noone is perfect and all that jazz...) At the end of the day though, I suppose we accept our faults, grip our vices and carry on.

    Interesting write. Thanks for the share ;)

    LOL - Yeah everyone's lied - but there's a distinct difference between little white lies and those humongous ones which are meant to horribly deceive & hurt, driving folks to the edge.

    lovely piece, how long have you been writing? To be honest I see a little bit of me in what you write here, I mean I see the kind of thoughts I was thinking and struggling to get on to paper back when I first started writing, the results were often disastrous unlike your piece here but I can see you in a place where you are looking at life and your surroundings through a confused haze and I can also predict that you do see a light and you are finding your way towards it, I don't mean you can attain complete clarity one day but till then keep on writing. Often as writers and poets we find ourselves in the position of society's conscience keepers but you will realize that its a powerless and a powerful position , you cant exactly change the world but you can change yourself , strive to be the best you can as a loving, kind and honest person and maybe that change will spread like a virus or when you breathe your last you can be content that you died trying as apposed to joining the negative forces.

    I've been writing for 4 years.And your right, striving to change oneself is what makes writing the greatest fun for me.
