Maybe they can lie to others
even onto them self
over and over
cheating and unfaithful
so that it might shake our balance
lies that thicken become the ego face
can no longer distinguish lies and reality
until it arrives at ignoring
on every caught lying
keep them away from themselves.
Maybe they were hijacked by world flickering sensation
but the breath of their soul, in solitude
has spent all their spiritual tears
has even melted the face of their humanity
but don’t worry about their attitude
or what they do to us
they contribute to us
into our enlightenment
after the small hidden door
of the rooms of lies, we find.
