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

-Eugenia

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