Trading Lies

How are you?
I am fine, and you?
I am fine, too.
We exchange the lie
and continue on our
path of silent desperation,
too afraid to let go of our fear.


  1. Good morning Pat. 👋 I chuckled when I read this, because one of my many “known to says” is “you may want to rethink that question, I don’t answer in the politically correct way – I’ll tell you how I am,” you might just want to say hello and stop there. LOL 😁


  2. Your image looks like the tree of life in DIsney World. I love it! Your short and sweet poem is so relevant. I remember a sermon once where my minster said how often people respond like that. Why can’t we always be real? I am still pondering this question.
