Time, Truth and Lies

Have you ever closed your eyes a second
Then found an hour has passed?
Or said ‘I’ll only have one”
To drink glass after glass?

The truths we often tell ourselves,
The lies that we believe,
It would be so much simpler,
So much more relief

To state just what we’re feeling,
To know where we are at,
“No, I don’t like what you show me
But I’d really like some of that!”

And yet we go on pretending
What we’re feeling doesn’t count,
Lie even to ourselves,
In small or large amount.

Guess that’s the way of being
For many of us here,
So I’ll close my eyes a second…

See you all next year!
