Words on paper, their meanings long gone
Friends and fakers, the difference is none
Promises drowned out, neglected, and rotten
With the sheer stench of lies, it seems I've forgotten
How to gain someone's trust
Or is it just them?
I could never guess with this incessant mayhem
Betrayed, paranoid, and insecure
Everyone's fighting in this nightmarish war

Will a winner emerge?
Only time will tell
But right now everything seems headed straight to hell
I guess that's why they say
"Think before you speak"
'Cause once the damage is done
Our bonds become weak
Everyone's an enemy, a target, if you will
Distrust is something that's become run-of-the-mill

Hands are being dirtied, blood is being shed
The fictions people spout dye this world in red
It's everywhere, truth and lies become one
Don't waste your time hiding, don't even try to run
In reality, words are the only thing with power
Think of all the lies you can tell in an hour
How? You probably think me insane
Lemme stop you there, 'cause your conjecture is inane
Ruminate, ponder, is the picture still opaque?
Give it some thought for your own sake
After all, the pen is mightier than the sword
His actions spoke, but his words roared
It took me some time, but I finally put it together. Writing poetry is not easy. :/

I like it it's very reflective of reality and what goes on in the world
It really makes you think which is what I think a good poem should do =)
