The lie!

If there’s one thing I’ve learnt, my life is a lie.

No, I’m not a lier, but I’ve got no other choice.

You wanna know the truth, the truth that society expects to hear.

There’s nothing quite wrong but it doesn’t feel right.

If there’s one thing I’ve learnt, I’m living a lie.

Every day the same thing. My palms get sweaty and the uneasy feeling stays as the day goes by.

My soul is dying to break free, but I know it ain’t right.

Who wrote the book on goodbyes?

If there’s one thing I know, my mind is a mess.

Pretending to be guilt-free, as the next lie leaves my lips.

You ask me how I am, what parts of the world I’ve seen and yet there is still one question still unasked.

It’s the same answers every single time. Why do we even bother asking?

If there’s one thing I feel, it’s the pain in my chest.

It happened again. Don’t your roots keep holding you back?

We all know the answer, but yet I don’t know what to say. Do I spit it out?

It’s me and my mind alone.

If there’s one thing I do, it’s the tears that I dry.

People are not bothered. Yet they still want to hear. But if I told them the truth, they’d pretend to be empathetic.

Yet, people don’t care, keep that in mind.

Society is not meant to have people sticking out of the crowd.

But what if I told you, the one thing I’ve learnt.

If you wanna break free, speak up and be proud.

You’re looking for help? You’re looking for support? You’re looking for an open ear?

People do care and it’s okay to be down.

We all play our own little game, paused on different levels.

Although neither wants to admit it, we’re all fighting the same devils.
