All the Lies


All we were

All we cared to be

All our hopes

dreams and trials

swept away

up in smoke

buried beneath

a pack of lies


All who came

Looking for more

Gave their all

To try anew

On their knees

Forced to fall

Buried beneath

The growing lies


All our pride

Stolen from us

freedom and

privacy gone

All our love

under the gun

Buried beneath

A war of lies


All together

Letís take it back

Do all we need

To save our lives

Stand up now

Refuse to be

Buried beneath

All their lies

Very touching poem, all their lies, lies are all over the place, Sandy,I just hope and pray one day very soon the fog will be lifted. Thank you for seeing through the lies.

A powerful scream
Hope it will be heard
All I hear now is the echo of my screams but no reply
probably hear another lie
love and peace

Well crafted poem with verses that touch deeper as you scale up in the well constructed imagery and wisdom. Well done Sandy
Reviewed by Felix Perry 2/1/2006
Sandy...I am impressed this got inside my mind and heart and I knew I'd been there before. This poem so well done in rhyme, meter, imagery is all superb but the ability to grab me and let me know I am not alone that others have felt the same sting of lies and love is so....astounding.
