Do you see what I see?
Do you feel what I feel?
I deceive you because I am afraid…
             Afraid that you will react.
                    Afraid that you will be mad.
                           Afraid  of hurting you.
                                Afraid of disappointing you.  
                                         Afraid to tell you the truth.

I deceive to hide the truth. I would rather lie and sneak than risk being punished. As a child I was severely punished. Deception allowed me to avoid punishment. Could deception hurt more than telling the truth? Could I tell the truth and not be punished?  Can I be real?
