Suspicious (Originally Untitled and Unfinished) – Friday 25th April 2008


the more someone tells me –
how wonderful their life is
the more suspicious i become
who are they trying to convince?
if you are contented and happy
what reasons are there –
for telling the rest of the world
it is like those parents
who make a point of illustrating
how much they give to their children
over and over and over…
it should be a given
not something you point out
the more somebody tells me
the less i become convinced
