A lie is sometimes true

A lie is sometimes true when someone listens
To hear the things that one needs to be said

A single word that could alter the meaning
Is added or subtracted in one’s head

“I love you” seems so true when it is spoken
Yet in the air it sometimes changes shape

Upon its changing shape its truth is broken
Once broken, truth makes loving feel like rape

A lie is sometimes the moment given
But circumstance and time may change a fact

And once a fact is changed the change is written
And what was once your life is now an act

Can dead be really dead if one has risen
Can rising make the death become a lie

Is something never taken never given?
And is the truth erased by a ‘good-bye’?

A lie is sometimes true when someone listens,
To hear the words that will erase the pain

You Always Have A Choice


You always make a choice

You make a choice

To be the driver of your live


You make a choice to be

The passenger


But in choosing to be

The driver be aware

Of not only the destination

Bit also the passing of life

Along the way


And if you choose to be

The passenger,

Choose to share in knowing

The destination

Do not just idly watch life

As it passes by

You can choose to make

Each decision as it comes

Or you can choose to follow

The decisions of others

Whichever choice you make

Choose to be responsible


Whether Active or passive

Whether Leading or following

Whether Moving or staying

You have made a choice

A decision

Active or passive

And In the quiet acceptance

Of your choice

In the quiet acceptance

Of your responsibility

You will find

Quiet power

And active peace
