You’d Think I Would Learn

To educate is to teach, to learn something,

But how does one educate themselves?

I need to learn not to expect so much.

I need to accept others don’t care like I do.

I need to stop expecting a “how are you”

Because it just isn’t happening.

I need to stop hoping for a call “just because”

It is not something they will do.

I need to cram for this test called life

For it is not the lessons I thought I would learn

INSOMNIAC

Or maybe I’m dreaming of being awake. And in this

with topics ranging from her to my lack of authenticity. Making

connections with all that was until I’m utterly exhausted

and wake. I’m not an insomniac, and yet these

dreams won’t let me sleep. Please.

In my profession it is important to know if someone is lying to me or more importantly to themselves. Whether it is a small lie or a malicious lie, everyone lies at some point. Research shows that on average, people lie 10 times per day. Many people lie to keep the peace or to inflate their ego.
