        Deceit, such an ugly word

        It’s when people cant believe a word that they’ve heard


        When our gambling we’ve tried to hide

        It’s hard to remember how much we’ve lied


        Lies of fact  – “I Wasn’t there” 

        “I didn’t gamble”  I didn’t care.


        Deciet though has many forms,

        Those lies of fact are just one of it’s norms


        For all the times that we may have lied

        Another deceit is the things that we hide


        The bills, the letters and those debts

        Hiding the mail, feeling closed in by the net


        Hiding the statements, all bank accounts

        If they know that we gamble. we cant say the amount


        There comes a time though it all closes in

        And true recovery can only begin


        When we replace our lies, and all that deceit

        And replace them with two words that are the opposite


        Honesty and openness might be hard to do

        But they help a lot and are prettier too.

          At the core of all deception
          Lies a lack of self reflection
          On our attitudes, behaviours and beliefs.
          False interpretation and irrational correlation
          Lead to lies, illusions, notions and deceit.
          ‘Til you overcome this practice
          And pursue alternate tactics
          Such as openness, awareness and clear truth
          You will need to seek contrition
          Accept change and opposition
          To a lifestyle you decided to create
          When you chose then, to continue
          The deceit that lay within you
          And resigned to attribute it to “fate”.
          Call it lies, untruth or rumour
          We know that we just humour
          Our illusions when we try to fabricate.
          But before we try to figure ways to stop this growing bigger
          Let’s be honest with each other and ourselves
          Even though the truth may hurt us-(lies will make our lives seem worthless)
          Let’s get ready for self searching and deep delves!
