Why do people lie
They always get found out
Then when you dare to tell them
They start to scream and shout

So instead you say nothing
and your lips… keep them zipped
Waiting for the moment
when they realise that they’ve tripped

It hurts that they have lied to you
When with them everything you share
Stupid little white lies
So you pretend you just don’t care

Now you think they don’t respect you
Or trust you in every way
That is what hurts you
and drives you to despair

If you take a step and think about it
You will realise you lie too
To protect someone you love
from hurting just like you

As long as they are little ones
and the intention behind them good
Forget…..Forgive and Smile
Don’t go in a mood.

    So true. Everyone lies in one way or another, if not to others, then to themselves. I totally agree with the message of the poem. That’s a very healthy attitude towards life and people. Love the poem.
