You Don’t Know

How can you let me hurt so?
How can you stand there and laugh
Smile and chat to your heart’s content
When I can feel my world shuttering inside?
How can you be so happy
When I can’t even master the strength for a fake smile?

I’m afraid to look into your eyes
To raise up my head and see you smile.
I’m afraid to ever ask
If I still exist in your world
Afraid of the answer I might get
Afraid of what I might see.

Every day I tell myself I’m gonna be just fine –
Everyday I wake up and get dressed
Push myself just to get through another day.
Every day I lie to myself
Believing it’s the only way I’m ever going to survive
And every day, I die a little more inside.

How can I be so disoriented
When you look like your world is a shining rainbow?
How can I be so afraid
When you seem like nothing can stop you?
How is it I struggle with myself in your presence
Yet you barely ever seem to blink
Like the past is nothing but that?

But you don’t know the truth
You don’t know the battle I fight
You don’t know the tears I’ve shed
You don’t know the pain I feel
You don’t know the lies I tell myself

So you stand there and be happy
You smile and laugh
Because you don’t know

Comfortable Within

We lie, we lie, and we lie
We look into each others’ eyes
And we lie
We smile into each others’ face
And we lie
We hug and shake hands
And still we lie

Every day we meet
We lie
Every time we talk
We lie
Day after day
We lie, and still we lie

We go home and we think
Tomorrow is another lie
We’ll meet, talk, touch, laugh
And then lie some more

Everyday is a lie
Because you and I
Have always been a lie.

The Truth Behind the Lie

The Boy who Lied


I’m sure many of you have heard of the story of Pinocchio; the wooden boy who whenever told a lie, his nose would elongate and become bigger and bigger until he told the truth, in which case it would reduce until it’s normal size.

Ever met someone who said to you “I’m not a liar?” or “I would never lie to you”? Just so you know…That is a lie. Everyone lies, whether intentionally or unintentionally, for one reason or the other.

Big Fat Liar

I watched this movie once called “Big Fat Liar”; don’t know how many of you have heard about it, but there’s this part they say that “The Truth is over-rated”.  Do you think it is? Frankly I don’t but I still think that many things are just made out of lies.



Liar Liar

There’s also that movie with Jim Carey “Liar Liar”. A lawyer who told so many lies all the time even to his boy that one day his son wished that he wouldn’t tell a single lie for one whole day.

Sometimes people tell lies to protect someone they care about but then, does that make it alright to lie? Does that exempt the fact that it’s still a lie?  I cannot say really, people lie for many reaons, but I think no matter the reason, it doesn’t change that it’s still a lie. Sure there are people we love, people we would do anything to protect, to make sure they are safe; but are we doing them right by lying to other people? Are we really protecting them? I doubt that they would appreciate you lying on their behalf.

If you are smart enough, you would realise that no matter how much you lie the truth will always come out. And the problem with telling a lie is that once you start one, it will only get bigger and bigger and then you will have no escape. By the time the truth comes out, you are the one who will lose everything and live with the regrets.

A lie is a lie. The truth always comes out one way or another!
