Too Worried About Hiding Your Own Lies

November 10, 2020

FREE WRITING

25


Perhaps, you're too worried about
hiding your own lies,
                       to see
                            that 
                                we are all
                                    sinking into
                                        a dark 
                                            abyss
                                                of lost
                                                    hope.

(It's like a prison, ice-cold and dark)

It's dark down here. We are all wallowing
in our own untruths and hatred for each other.


Don't worry. Even if you manage
to stay on top,
                We
                    will
                        find a
                            way
                                to drag
                                      you down
                                            with us. 

(We will not let you thrive peacefully, while 
the rest of us suffer from the mess,
that you created.)


It's dark down here, but I can see you clearly. 
I can see the fear that you hide beneath your power.


You are too afraid to admit
that you have failed,
                            so
                                you
                                    push us
                                        down,
                                            and
                                                let us
                                                    drown. 

(We can't breathe anymore)

It's dark down here. We cry crimson tears, as you
push us apart, one by one. 



Perhaps, you're too worried about
hiding your own lies,
                       to see
                            that 
                                we are all
                                    sinking into
                                        a dark 
                                            abyss
                                                of lost 
                                                    hope.

It's so dark down here..."

    This formatting gives it a whole new level of meaning! And I interpreted this as people suffering due to climate change because the people currently in power didn't do anything to fix they have created. I love how you've written this!

    I love the new format you decided to use; it really catches the eye, to simply put it. The idea of this is so thoughtfully crafted, and overall, I really enjoyed reading this. I also like how this piece can be interpreted in any way, depending on how the reader sees it as. Keep up the great work!!!

    Note: I've read this like, 3 times so far! :)

    Re: So far, I really like it. It's been really eye-opening and thought provoking. I don't see much of that kind of stuff in my protected corner of the world. Idk. I'm not done yet so I have to reserve final judgement til later.

    Wow, I love the imagery! And there’s no many different interpretations! I was thinking of some new political and cultural organizations... XD. I’m so lame XD. But this piece isn’t! Love!
