What is a lie?
A secret untold, unjustified
How can you look someone in the eye
Knowing that the lie will eventually be identified

Why start a story
Full of agony and hate
To destroy future history
of a happy fate

Its hard to look someone in the face
Knowing that they make up stories to tell
A vision of them being liars, you can’t erase
Feeling let down, you want to hit, cry, and yell

Having someone think you are not good enough
Causes feelings of despair,
A lie makes the character tough
A lie makes the character feel worthless,
therefore… beware
