Reaping

The sheer quantity of lies and false alibis
Are going to drag you down in the end.
Tying you up in chains of your own delusions,
Machinations, pretence. The price you’ll owe
Will be claimed in the end. It cannot be avoided.
It cannot be denied. The wheels are turning
Time ticks on until the final tock.
Then you’ll look back across an ocean of deceits
To find only your lies have kept pace,
Honest companions to you.
