Creating My Illusion

Our biggest target when we try so deftly
To bamboozle and engage in untruths
Is the one most gullible to these tricks
Desperate to believe the illusions
Hardest put to keep up the shields
Mostly unknowing of their complicity
No foreboding to the realization
When the bubble bursts so indelicately
At that moment when we learn
That we have been lying to ourselves
It is the absolute worst
Because others saw through the haze
Yet we draped it lower and added layers
For the truth can be a difficult thing
A giant in the challenges of our mind
Yet when we face it and conquer the beast
Lay bare our inner self to all that we are
Accept and approve of the real reflection
We begin to live and thrive
