False Truth


People ever tell me what I did,
Reminding me of every step I took,
If they only knew that I did not want to remember it,
My selfishness,
I kept no hope for myself,
It was lost,
Lost in the deeps of the mountain,
I never really think that I would tell,
How I treated my friend,
How I behaved so overcome with it’s power,
Never did I think that I would corrupt,
And my worst fear came true,
I have never considered it as lying,
But I never considered it as truth either,
What I told everyone was what they wanted to hear,
The things that I saw, that I experienced,
And now I really know,
What I was telling them was,
False truth.
