poetry is a diary written out loud

everyone's a hipocrite
no matter how much you own
you look inside your shadow
your shadow is your clone

you choose to push it else where
and put it in a bag
you pretend that its not there
because you desided it was bad

you couldnt except it
so you told another lie
and when someone confronted you
it made you want to cry

because you cant except them
the bad side of your clone
you break yourself in half
now both halves are alone
