Thousand Lies


A picture paints a thousand words
In which depicts a life
I paint my life with a thousand lies
For the truth would cause much strife.

These little lies, I must confess
Provide me no sheer pain
Temporary relief bestows my mind
Nothing to lose or gain.

Day by day I tell a lie
So measly and so white
To tell the truth I couldn't dare
It doesn't seem quite right.

I could try to stop if I want
Tell the truth instead of lie
Yet the lies I've built keep building up
My lies have piled high.

A thousand lies to make my life
A painted vision to see
The life I want the world to know
Even if it isn't me.

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
