"bad blood is more satisfying to spill across the floor..."


I won’t pretend








As if I were a toddler




That I am a princess
Living in an ideal world
Where fight, hate, war
Death
Do not exist
In any language
There is no need
In naming
What isn’t real
I’m not stupid
Not when it comes
To this
Nor am I blind


I can see what is right before me


Hidden
I can hear, and can ignore





Like a child

His parent’s commands
What you say does not affect me
My mind
is made


up



Taking

for granted

And



never

questioning

The
oddest

of facts

Are
we


really

that
stupid?


As a cover-up


Bite



your lip
The



faults in humanity
We


feel

obliged

We


feel


self-

conscious




We are
Human
So we

Love to
Control
What

We can
And fill
Minds

With what
They’ll
Believe

A wise word does not make the speaker wise.

Little confused on what you mean, there is manipulation as an obvious theam, but of what is to be answered.

Thanks!  The spacing actually got messed up when I submitted it.  The words were previously arranged to spell out "Lies....".

"Do what you love and love what you do

I loved it. The only think that I may suggjest is maybe putting more words on a line. Not using so many line breaks. But great poem! It has great mood!
