OK Mr Onion I've gone through my folders and I think I've found a good one so read on and be (not so) amazed!


Half Truth

The truth is a wonderful thing
And simple truths abound
But in a life with shades of grey
Thereís one thing I have found

The truth I tell is the one I know
The half truth of my mind
Half again in my expression
Me my friends will never find

Read my poems; They lie less than I
But they twist their explanations
Which just then goes to show
That life breeds simple confusions.

I am a man who feels true joy
And that there is the truth
I know a friend who knows to laugh
So true in the pained youth

But true joy masks true sorrow
A paradox for sure
Laughter true can be unfelt
And peace be marred by love

When I look into your eyes
Do I see the light of years?
Or only of a moment?
A joke on willing ears

This is all that there is
For us mortals bound
A game with pieces never seen
While words fly round and round

Now I tell another lie
A half truth will deceive
Although of that mine intentions
Never could conceive

The truth is a wonderful thing
And simple truths abound
But in my life, in shades of grey
This is all Iíve found

Only the insane are strong enough to prosper...
Only those who prosper can truly judge what is sane.

(do I hear a crickt in the backround?)

There's a fine line between Genius and Insanity
I have Erased that Line
