Liars

Why does everyone lie?

What’s in it for them

A brief deceit

A moment of temporary belief

In something otherwise

Unlikely?

Why

Why lie

I can’t sleep

Thinking about all of the

Smug, self-righteous liars

Taunting me

I would sooner kill myself

Than trick others into believing

I’m something I’m not

Ah, who am I kidding

I’d kill myself today

All y’all would lie and say

I had depression,

It would’ve happened anyway

Wrong–!

All it would’ve taken

Is a single truth

A single honest statement

Alas, truth is forsaken.
