“Among Liars and Thieves”

Sometimes I ask myself what it’s all for
the struggle, expenditure and toil
existence is a lonely game
filled with misunderstood souls, each seeking
some glimpse of familiarity, of approval
we blind ourselves to obscure the truth
tamper with our own experiments
to feed our desire for results
when being right is more important than being accurate
but alas
that same humanity which gives us the ability to create
to discern beauty
to feel the very depths of emotion
also makes us fallible
oh artists, poets, visionaries
we are all but liars and thieves
