Lies For Truth

Village of Ciampi 2021 - Saying A Prayer That We  Find Peace In These Times
Lies For Truth
by Michael Doyle

There's a lot of people mistaking
The Devil's lies for the truth
It's an easy road to heartbreak
Especially, in our bolder youth

Chasing at golden bits of hilarity
With blinders on as we strain to see
Seeking after just a little clarity
And only finding star-gazing humanity

It's our puzzle to work out
Lost within our mental war
Hearts fill both sincerity and doubt
As we struggle to open each door

Is this then what life has to offer
Like a buffet of all we cannot eat
Born with hearts of hope that needn't proffer
The wages of sin paid in full in the heat

Passions burn us into jaded temptation
As we struggle through passages at our hands
Until we realize our hope rests in redemption
From things we will never fully understand
