Art History Vol.9 Real Eyes See Real Lies, But Realer Eyes See The Self Told Lies

The mirror always has and always will be an accurate reflection of what we are. You can tell a million and one lies to the world and their friend, but in the mirror, all that's ever reflected back is the truth.
You see it's easy to tell a lie and walk away, as those words are left in the past for someone else to fester on. But in the dark of night, in the quiet and lonely hours, that keep you up all night, you know exactly who you are and what you are.
Real eyes see real lies, but realer eyes see the self told lies because its only in the moments of self reflection that were able to break down to the basics that allow us to truly grow.


About The Writer

I've spent close to 10 years working with some of London's most extreme young offenders. Working with them tirelessly in trying to create real opportunities for them, while trying to bring stability to the chaos that can be their world at times. I don't even call this work, as this is something I love doing, and thankfully my passion for it has helped many of these young people into much brighter circumstances.
If you'd like for me to give a talk to your class in regards to the issues that surround these young people or require consultancy for dealing with these young people then please feel free to get in contact.

You can also buy my ebook Jerry for just 99p which gives an in-depth and thought provoking look into the chaos that can surround the lives of some young offenders please click here. Or to support my 4TY project where we work creatively with these young people using music please click here
