Learning to lie

making  others’ falsehoods my own

kneeling  before a false god

amidst cheer and praise

 

Learning how to control

every emotion, every thought

compartmentalising reality

more than had ever seemed possible

 

Learning how to save

family and friends

yes, and myself

by losing my own humanity

 

Learning how to survive

like so many have tried before

when a forgotten history

returns with a vengeance
