True Lies – Day II – NaPoWriMo 2014

Words flow forth freely
But whose words are these, not mine
They are another’s

Yet the words ring close
As if most familiar
Yet of foreign tongue

Words of truth and hope
Of justice and loyalty
Of the home and hearth

Words most powerful
Turning minds and hearts alike
Towards noble goal

Convincing even
Their speaker, unassuming
Unbeknownst to him

Are they then a lie?
If spoken sans conviction
But heard lacking none

Or am I the lie?
Hiding behind nonchalance
Afraid of their truth

What is the answer?
Which of the lies then holds true?
The one told or lived?
