Lies and tricks

Lies and tricks
take me on detours
from my chosen path
Lured by promises 
of a future
with no guarantees
I now realize
it wasn’t 
the one I ordered
Seduced by false idols,
it takes all my strength
to see beyond
their luminosity 
and give up
and give in
and give myself back
to the place I started from
where hopes and dreams
stir and grow
where trust and love
become 
the only guiding beacons
of light
I see.
