If it is easier to smile than to frown,

why do I see my sorrowed reflection

in the mirror before me?

Because I am lazy by nature,

and I typically, automatically seek

The choice that is

quickest,

safest,

easiest.

And so my face has slipped into this visage,

when a smile would be harder to show

and my true feelings harder to hide.

Those feelings of betrayal,

of loneliness and hurt when I discovered

that second agenda…

Because maybe I wasn't the first agenda at all,

and maybe I'm misconstruing the initial idea

by mixing up

first and second,

right and wrong,

lust and love.

So I think perhaps I'm not the only lazy one,

Who finds it natural to take the easiest way out

Because they say it is easier to speak a lie than the truth.
