22. Lies

Truth be told

everyone lies

some to others

some to self. 


14. Monsters 

My ten year old sister
was afraid of a monster
living in her closet
There is no such thing, 
i lied
and kissed her good night. 

The monsters don’t live in closets, 
No more.

We who live in air conditioned rooms
cabinets full of costumes and perfumes
just living the dream
while the bombs keep falling
a mother weeps and children scream
families fleeing from their homes
with no where to sleep.

We who are full of self obsession 
hypnotised to our phones and television 
millions in currency stored
while poverty keeps killing 
people begging to the lord
killing each other
for a one time meal.

We who don’t care about the planet
the only home we have
We who put our faith first 
when we all are humans

We are the monsters.
