Why do people lie?
Why live in falsehood?
I'll never understand it,
And it'll never do them any good.

Taking credit for something not theirs,
The so called victory must be bitter,
In retrospect they are only lying to themselves,
It's just emotional or mental litter.

If they do from lack of self confidence,
That I can easily relate to,
I'm lacking there myself,
But surely there is something else they can do?

They should be proud in what they CAN do,
And perfect their special skills,
Lying will get them nowhere,
Won't even give them thrills.

I've always tried to be honest,
Not even bend the truth,
Knowing this within myself,
I finally acknowledge my worth.

Indeed! Everyone has worth. They just have to find out where their talents lie (no pun intended) and develop them! Great expression, Isis!

Isis....I agree, I think lying to get yourself ahead is a terrible thing

oh what tangled webs we weave.. ( to quote the best).. However, I have long gotten over ppl lying. Especially for their own gain. I've lived long enough to see that it never really works for long. Try to remember that you will probably never see these ppl get their just deserts, but take heart in knowing that they most certainly will!

(smile).. nice post

You know what? The truth never stays buried for long. Lies just get bigger and bigger until they lead well, anybody should know that. I don't lying either.

Thanks KL and WhtDove, I feel sorry for the people who have to lie to feel they get anywhere in this old world

Me too, Isis...I have a real problem with people who can't tell the truth. They are usually caught in their web for one lie leads to another and another...Well stated.
