no, you shut up!

goodbye
did you ever have to leave something behind? something destructive, deceptive or hurtful. perhaps all three? because you finally figured it out. you finally realized you bought into a lie and you just aren't going to do it anymore. your eyes have been opened by truth. and even then, the lie continues to present itself decent and true... more lies to hide the old lies. but you laugh, because you can't believe a lie would be so stupid as to think you don't know better. the lie still thinks you're weak. still thinks you are gullible or impressionable or vulnerable. perhaps the lie is deceiving itself. or perhaps the lie is afraid of withering, because it knows in the end it will be found out by all.

i've got no time for you, lie. i've got a life to live. you are ugly, when i never thought you could be. if you were truth, you would be beautiful. but you are a lie, and this is where i leave you far behind.

Yes...good to uncover the lies. Better to walk in the truth! So much easier! Lies take work...too much so as far as I am concerned.

That's a good definition for a lie, destructive, deceptive and hurtful.
I like the color in the clouds. We've had torrential rains for the past two days.

Hi Kooky said...

Amen to kicking the lies to the curb! I know exactly what you're talking about. Hope you're feeling lighter now. :)

Being an artist is about recognizing the truth, even when it's a truth you hate to find. It means discarding lies, seeing with a hawk's eye. Love this! It seems to be on everyone's minds this blogging day. We are all figuring things out. Beware, world!!

jill said...

can totally relate. and once you recognize the lie, you wonder how and why you dealt with it in the first place.

great photo!

It sounds like you have exactly the right attitude. Sometimes people never even get where you are, recognizing the lie in the first place. Now that you have, you get to choose what to do about it.
