Sincerity

Recommended Posts

Sincerity

I look around and stand on my own feeble feet

Glancing at the nobodies who surround me

I raise my glass and with one loud proclamation;

?Here?s to a lifetime of lies and deception?

Applause and we all swirl the envy-green liquid into our mouths

The taste of impurities fresh on our tongues

We talk of bitterness and the less fortunate

We laugh but only at the expense of others

We speak but it?s only to degrade each other

We think but it?s only intense jealous thoughts

I suppose sincerity is too hard to grasp nowadays

I think it's a very well structured poem - and it IS a poem, doesn't have to rhyme - but very cynical for one so young. There's a lot of GOOD, sincere people in the world too. Sometimes you just have to look a little deeper.
