I said I’d do my best,
But I’ve failed near every test.
I said I was doing fine,
As my grades, they did decline.
I said I’d tell the truth,
But it doesn’t take a sleuth,
To see my life’s a sham.
A big lie is all I am.
A hypocrite to the end,
As my lies, I did defend.
To the very core of my being,
It was the truth I was truly fleeing.
Escaping on the wings of lies,
I joined all the other flies,
To flee from everything I used to be.
I didn’t get very far,
For my wings soon turned to tar,
Stopping me from seeing what I needed to see.
But now the truth is clear,
My destruction is very near.
Unless I can lose these lies that bind me.
They say the truth shall set you free,
And I really hope that comes to be,
Because I can’t see through these tears in my eye.
I’ve been blind for all this time,
As if someone sprayed me with a lime,
And yet still, I kept on trying to fly.
But now my sight is finally clear,
And my life I can finally steer,
To wherever I need to be before I die.
