I am a liar.

I lie with a smile

plastered on my face

when the world is crumbling

around me.

I lie

to ease the pain

of strangers

just to witness a glimpse

of hope on their faces.

I lie

to erase the guilt

of loved ones who neglect

me during my dark times.

I have been lying my entire life.

Spewing words of encouragement

that I didn’t believe,

for others to succeed.

I am am a liar.
