The First Lie
10-18-17


We're told we can be
whatever we want to be when we grow up;
it's too late once we've slowly realized
we were funneled into
someone else's dreams.
That's the first lie we're ever taught
         to recite
         and learn a by-heart
         answer to.
Someone else likely
knows what we're destined to be
against all interested wishes;
they just don't know
the most important part:
         who.
