We must stand tall to defeat ~ The Labyrinth Of Lies!

Labyrinth Of Lies

How many of us live ~ 
Our lives from day to day?
Only to find we can't,
Get out of our own way?
We try to find balance ~
Strive to improve our lives.
Only to find we're lost,
In a labyrinth of lies.

~ ? ~

Trying to decipher ~
This cryptogram of time.
Searching for the answer,
Within these words of rhyme.
Never really knowing ~ 
Just what we're looking for.
Maybe it will find us,
If we search a little more?

~ ? ~

We've travelled down this road ~
The path to misery.
Battled the moat monsters,
And conquered evil queens.
All just to find ourselves ~
Gazing into the haze.
How much more must we endure,
Before exiting this maze.

~ ? ~

There's got to be a light ~
Somewhere around the bend.
A conclusion or an end,
To halt this rapid descent.
Somehow, Someway, Somewhere ~
Beyond our soulful cries.
We must stand tall to defeat,
The Labyrinth Of Lies! 

 ~ ? ~

Yep, I know this maze Ken! Look I want you to remember something thro' it all, ok?- A labyrinth was created, and ia still used today- for one to walk through, and find the peace we seek. A true labyrinth isn't a confusing curse, it's a blessing- finding your inner strength(and weakness) with a simple turn of direction. Life is a labyrinth- and Ken, you are conquoring your maze just fine; like the true knight you are.- now aside from that- this poem is insane, very well thought out, taking us- the reader, thro' your perfectly deplicted puzzle of 'life'- cool stuff cat!- smiles, Maddi

I share the sentiment...but how to make sense out of nonsense? haven't quite managed to pull that one off yet. I like the way this is structured and the delivery is flawless.

I know that the life in the light is out there i lived it for a number of yeas . I found my light in the arms of someone who is gone on now. So yes it is there . I have also been in this mist since then so the dark is there too. One day I will find the light again in a pure heart full of love and Ken my dear friend you will too . Someone with such talent and a pure heart will find the light you are the Knight and you vowed long ago to seach and fight for this till the end . Marie

sometimes the lies that are hardest to see through are the ones we tell ourselves, in truth when we tell ourselves the same lie over and over to other people, eventually we believe them as the truth. The truth is we all are born into a world of darkness, we all are lost wandering in the fog of illusions and lies, just most are so blinded by the illusions of society as they never realize they are lost to begin with. I call this parable the walking dead, as they go through life playing out the motions of exsistance witout ever knowing what it truely means to be alive. The fact that you realize at times you are lost is a reassurance that you are not totally blind, and sometimes as you wander in the depths of the darkness you can find the purest and brightest of all light, that from within... Purity of the soul, journey well!!! with grace and humility ANGEL

Thanks John ... You my friend have the keenest insight that I have come across on this site. You are always able to dig deep into the real meaning of poems, mine and so many others ... You sir are very fortunate to have such an ability. .. a gift that not many of us have. ... You amaze me .. as you know .. I play in the dark .. but i live in the light, and as you have said many times .. in order for one to truly know themselves .. they need to delve into the dark .. but not so deep as to never return. Thanks so much again for being such a great friend! :) Ken

Balance what you hear with what you think, of what you know and think the others know, add a grain of salt and swallow deeply. Great write my friend, be well k
