[Does one deceive others or oneself?
|DECEPTION AND LOVE: award winner
No bounds know depths of deception
And nor do those of love.
The same God who made the hawk did
Create also the dove.
Some are bound ever to deceive,
Some are always deceived.
Who is smarter of the two is
Those who have got a guileless heart
And take the others’ word,
May be duped of their riches but
Find a place in His world.
