"Lets go make daisy chains in the grass, but only if its 74 degrees or above. I would like to fall in love with you." (:

Buzzes of a lying tounge's whisper fill my sensitive ears.
They believe that I can not see through their angelic mask
but I hear the beating of their deciteful hearts loud and clear.
The hallway walls enclose around me like a permafrosted, steel cage.
Though to some I appear trapped-
that is their illusion given to me with the sickest of imagery.
Yet I am not illiberal, nor a fool. I shall be set free!
For I am not foolish enough to believe a lying tounge.

Be respectful to others yet do not e a fool. Believe what you know is right, yet.... Do not beleve everything you see either.
