Writing Prompt Wednesday – “Mist”


Reality is by distourtion

Much can be said about ourselves from the lies we tell

How we see the world, how we see each other, ourselves

Lies can tie together or pull apart the very base we come from

And yet, we continue with the deceit. Why?

To protect, to improve our views of others, or even ourselves

Out of selfishness, out of fear, hoping it will come true

The lies continue, like an ever-present mist over our eyes

With lies, we don’t have to see the truth

With lies, we can hide from the reality

Seeing ourselves, truly, for what we really are

That can be the most horrifying thing we ever face
