The Truth is finally revealed--
I was used
with my half-conscious consent:
niceness and kindness
and too much live-and-let-live,
my own chains;
the princess bird in her gilded cage
all over again.
I finally woke up,
to my own awakening.
One can only take so much.
Doing one thing yet naming it another,
As a matter of fact,
As a matter of course.
Call it what you will,
I still call it lying.
The Lie is finally put to rest.
I will have no part of it anymore.
