Lies

Lies come in and hang out
They are insidious,
Worming in and staying
In our heads saying
That some small thing
Or so it starts, but
Like freezing water it expands
And wears away at the fissures,
The cracks in our minds
In our foundations
Widening them
Tearing at the bond
We each have with
The rock we stand on
Until it feels like everything
Is crumbling beneath us
Our feet no longer able
To support us
We feel shaken, off balance
Until the Steadier of our Souls
Comes and wipes
The lies away
With His own hands
Or the hands of His
Child He designates
To speak His truth
Into the lies
Wiping them all away
