My Lying I’s (eyes)

“Wanting to be liked can get in the way of truth.”
Delia Ephron

 I yearned to be a star

I knew I would go far

It was all about me,

myself and my I

but they all knew

my truths were askew

they were too wise

to my lying eyes

    That quote is quite concise and yet deep. For pretence can get in the way of truth. I enjoy how you turn these things.
