Castle of sand
One lie can change a hundred truths,
and that lie leads to a hundred more.
A kingdom built with what appeared to be solid rocks, turned out to be just sand.
All blown away when the storm hit.
The storm you created, as an excuse to leave.
Sand running through my fingers, mixed with all the lies.
I'm staring at the big pile of sand that used to be our life.
I dug for weeks, for truth and reasons.
The truth hit harder than the lies.
With time I stopped digging, there's no point.
I already had the truth.
I said my farewells to you in that pile of toxic sand and I left.
To follow a new path, my path.
The one no one's ever walked before me.
I follow my truth on my unknown journey,
I know it'll lead me to my destiny.
I keep walking, to a bright future.
