A Dance of Truth and Lies

Your life is such a complicated dance,
You say one thing, another grips your mind.
If you were honest do you think we’d find
You were not worthy of our second glance?

You build your life on fiction, not on fact,
Portray yourself as others wish to see,
Despite the fact it means you’re never free
To be yourself in how you think and act.

There’s truth in lies, with you, at least, that’s true,
You’ve worked so hard to build your life on lies,
That truth’s forgotten, we don’t hear its cries,
The lies you tell become more you than you.

But really, is the truth you hide so bad?
That you cannot be honest makes me sad.
