Lies
Are more than a
mask
they are a
translucent
piece of thin
paper,
opaque to those who can
read
me.

Lies
are my
blanket
in the cold night y'all
call
School.

Doesn't
matter
who's school
who's state
who's people--
it's all the
same.

Children
are
cruel.

People
are
not worth
it.

Life
is,
lies
aren't.

So
why do I
lie?


The author's comments:
I know people who lie so I decided to see if I could figure out why.
