In search of truth
I swim through lies, deceit and skepticism.
I walk through streets paved with the broken promises of parents, lovers
and anyone you can trust.
I remember a time when ‘I love you’ had substance,
and now as I grow older those words have become hollow and insincere.
I look inwards and wonder
if the world outside is a reflection of what’s going on within.
am I the person I aspire to be?
am I the kind of lover, friend, co-worker that I can be?
maybe changing the world is impossible,
but I do have the power to change myself.
