Perfect Lies BY Joseph Hope
We take a blank sheet, to write what we will
And press it against our naive hearts—convinced
Believing in our lies—our convinced truth
They come in styles—naked and pure
Naked and pure—we immortalize them
Here! Every man dies
To his perfect conviction.

I love the message. This poem captures our strong convictions as humans. I have noticed that we humans try to convince ourselves that our actions are always right and are done for an understandable reason. Really wish the poem was longer, but I still love it!
