Habit

Lie over lie,

Comes from my mouth,

When I’m confronted,

For the hundredth time.

Hiding the truth,

From myself and the world,

Hasn’t been easy.

How long will this go on?

How many more years?

When will I find the courage,

To face myself?

Being truthful is the only option,

So I’m breaking the habitual

Lying tonight.

Inspired by Breaking The Habit by Linkin Park.
