For I see lies and lies

The mind forms a lie.
Its seed spreads to the heart.
Then the tongue speaks the lie.
One lie after another.

Drowning in lies.
Lost in this grey fog.
What is truth?
It is unrecognizable.

When you speak, I distrust.
If I can lie so can you.
I have stopped trusting.
For I see lies and lies.

Truth under layers of lies.
Drowning! Gasping!
Honesty struggling.
My world rotting; decaying.

A world filled with lies.
Distorted truths told.
Where is honesty?
Painted in grey and black.

I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. In recent years, the younger generation have added on to include spouses from the Philippines, Nigeria and Russia. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira
