"Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." - Dr. Seuss


I cannot tell a lie
Sometimes the malice shows
As arrows are shot my way
I writhe and bite and strike in return.

I cannot tell a lie
Sometimes they hurt me so
Their promises shatter in my face
And I flare up with a vengeance.

To be honest,
I knew all along.
To be honest,
I knew they had lied.
Sometimes,
I want them to hurt,
To hurt for the hurt
They’ve caused.

I cannot tell a lie
I always believe in their promises
My heart holds onto the words
And I lift into an endless sky.

I always want it to be true.
I’ve always wanted to be carried away.
