When we self-reflect

The things we tell ourselves

Just may not be true

Distortions of our perception

Makes the sky gray and not blue

In our attempt to sway opinion

We may say things and try to deceive

The better we get at this

The better the chance is that they will believe

But it’s those little lies

When we self-reflect

That protect our egos

We are unwilling to inspect

If we lose our ability

To be truthful in how we act

Our credibility becomes weak

Breaking down the social contract
