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.
Cast your eyes on the ocean,
Every man goes down to his death bearing in his hands only that which he has given away...
