The liar runs on pride and pretends that he has siezed life.
The liar is lost and pounding on his own soul.
He eliminates the truth to find a torn piece of peace.
He strives to make it through hard conditions with the lies that are strained from his heart.
The liar leads an eccentric life of pain.
I am the liar.
I pretend to be the better when I am the worse.
I write as though i know it all.
You are great than I.
I am trampled under your feet of truthfulness and shrewed from my mind.
I am a shade of gray from black lies and white peace.
I stand as I stand and I can not change.
I am not a bundle of joy or a flame of enthusiasm.
I only pretend to be.
I am a condition of tears.
I am the liar who writes these thoughts of what I want to be.
Truthfulness is still combined in this spiraled world.
Don't ignore everything you hear and only half of what you see.
Maintain my insecure soul and feel my admitance.
Bend your ways to invite me in and then you will see how much we resemble each other.
Maybe everyone is a liar in the end.
We hold onto each other and grasp our thoughts so tightly that we can't see each others lies.
We laugh out our lies, we choke on our lies, and last of all, we live through our lies.
I am;
We are;
The Liars.

Oh so sad!
That you see through your inner eyes       the world in this way.

I am not a liar
not that I haven't lied
for Gods Grace has forgiven
all the garbage from that tide.
And now that it's all behind me
as it can be for you,
I see the world in a beautiful way
through the Joy of Honest and Truth.

Kari this is well written but I have to agree with Paul and say that I'm saddened to think that you feel this way, we all tell little lies but to most of us our whole being isn't a lie.

Interesting piece you have written here.
What is truth and where can it be found?
if at all.
Nice work.
