Deception of a Crowd
You can never truly trust
One moment it's Hosanna,
then the next it's Crucify!
Palm leaves give way to hateful glares.
Worship gives way to judgment and bias
Affirm becomes deny
for whatever reason.
So beware their hypocrisy!!!
Fake smiles, hidden laughs, illusionary pity.
Public countenance is the worst place
to bury your worth and grace
because one day soon,
you may fall
And your audience won't do a thing to pull you up.

Background Information: Recently, many celebrities, people, etc are criticized for what they believe (whether rightly or not). One moment, people are celebrating you. It never lasts long. Soon, they will accuse you of a wrong. A wrong word. A statement. A mistake. A belief. If life is based on the opinions of these, life will be a storm--the worst kind--the kind caused by men, women, people. I do not criticize the crowd, like most. It is who they are. I only warn that we cannot base life on a crowd's affirm. It often deceives.
