The world is filled with temptation.
The heart is filled with desires.
The eye’s is filled with it own truth.
The mind is on the breaking point of sane and insanity.
We are only human.
We are only creatures, neither light nor dark.
We are only ourselves.
Some wear mask to defeat others.
Some wear mask to defeat themselves.
Some wear mask to hide who they really are.
Here is the point where we must decide in our life where we stand.
For trust and love and kinship of your blood will be tested.
First was the temptation.
Then it sets with desires.
Afterwards either the truth or lies are spun.
And to the last who shall stand brave or break under the weight.
We speak of truth when behind us is nothing but woven lies, and hearts full of deceit.
Can you not see the hypocrite side of us?
Ha! It wounds me to known this, even more that I am one of those.
Take heed and resist or be forgotten with all others.
For in this life there is only good or evil, light and darkness, the possible and impossible.
Such is us.
Such is you.
Such is me.
Our world is filled with temptation.
Our hearts is filled with desires.
Our eye’s is filled with what we wish to see.
Our mind’s is filled with things that can make and break us.
