I’ve been alive for more then a decade but still have barely seen anything,
I’ve been in school for nearly a decade but still know less then what’s out there.

We spend all these years trying to feed our minds with facts about our planet,
Just to die and be reborn again and to do the same exact thing again.

Why do we waste our time doing this?
Following the same pattern over and over again.

Why do people murder out of cold blood?
Just to become a serial killer in the following years.

People say that in order to see the beauty of the Earth,
You have to be pure.
Make no mistakes, never be a real person,
Be a Liar.

Hello

I like it, but I feel you have more to say.  As if at the end you're stopping and you're about to continue.  I might elaborate a bit more or tell more of your personal emotion in it, tell something more

I wrote this because people think that they need to lie about themselves. So i was pretty much saying that instead of lieing about their lives and being a Liar they should just be who they want to be.

There was a lot of issues going on in each sentence I was lost at the liar part. Could you explain in a reply please?
