    Liar Liar life's on fire.

    I'm a sinner by the tongue,
    False claims and false promises.
    Uttered I have,
    Compared to none.

    To say opposites,
    To prevaricate,
    No second thoughts given,
    My thoughts dissimulate.

    Liar liar I have been claimed,
    Just like in the stories of many fairytales,
    People shunned me down,
    Left me to stale.

    I stay contended,
    As I see my lies have sprouted life,
    Has reaped it's fruit on many,
    To bring goodness never strife.

    Failed to notice they have,
    My intentions and notions,
    True they can't know them,
    I tend to keep close my emotions.

    Lies sometimes told,
    For the better and good,
    Is OK! Than to instill grief,
    By saying the truth.

    I'm a sinner by the tongue,
    False claims and false promises,
    Uttered I have,
    For the betterment of some.

    L I E

    We lie to deceit,
    we lie and repeat.


    We lie to hide our fall
    we lie to stand tall.


    We lie in seconds
    we keep on lying forever.


    One lie gives birth to
    one by one more,
    we keep lying to prevent
    revelation of our real face on floor.


    We lie for a reason
    then we lie for too many,
    we find lying, as small as a penny.


    We plan lying merely as a new move,
    but that is when we fall
    into the neverending loop.

    Hiding behind lies

    Hiding my insecurities under a mask
    Mask full of fake smiles and lies
    Lies which are integral part of my life
    Life unfortunately has recently been rough
    Rough on my mind, body and soul
    Soul is broken but can be easily mended
    Mended by lies, fabricated and shallow
    Shallow is what I feel without the guard
    Guard made by my hypothetical other self
    Self which is superior than this feeble one
    One should be stronger and fearless
    Fearless is what I feel with so many lies
    Lies have covered my unhealed scars
    Scars which pain but are always hiding

    When truth becomes your greatest pain,
    The world thinks of you as someone insane...
    Your emotions seem to bind you in chain...
    Your own voices screaming in memory lane...
    Happiness crying in corner in disdain...
    All attempts of you to rise falling into vain...
    It's better to lie to sustain...
    It's better to lie to maneuver the brain...
    It's better to lie than trying to explain...
    It's better to lie than to complain...
    Dance and cry all your heart out...
    It's better to lie...
    And tell that you really enjoyed the rain...

    Why do we lie?

    A lie can be spoken in many ways and for several reasons.
    Some lies are spoken to deceive people
    Others are uttered in fear
    Many lies are said to prevent a matter from worsening
    And there's another lie that we speak to please ourself but to hurt others.
    Sometimes we say a lie that is spoken to save a life, a relationship, to solve a problem and so on is not a lie but a good deed.
    Let's leave this judgement for Almighty
    Because many of us have surely said many lies for a good cause.

    Thats why I lied

    I knew I had
    Rough patches,
    Scattered throughout,
    The smoothness of my skin.

    And my heart,
    Had been colored with bruises,
    A cruel reminder,
    That my truth never did win.

    But you looked so beautiful,
    And my soul longed,
    To try again,
    Yet I knew,
    You'd never accept me,
    With how broken I really am.

    So I picked up a paint brush,
    And drew,
    Bright brown irises,
    And a big eye crinkling smile,
    Hoping it'd hide
    All my grey for a while.

    I put on pretty clothes,
    And sugar coated my tongue,
    Made myself so picture perfect,
    That my mirror couldn't recognize,
    Who I was.

    I changed myself,
    Until I was flawless,
    A beautiful, perfect lie.

    And all I ever wished for
    Was you to look at me,
    Once,
    And truly smile.

    Lie

    Liar liar shouts my heart,
    what can I do to get a start

    Lies are so integral part nowadays,
    simply because truth is bitter. My tongue goes off path to show off, to get money in black, get famous, be ahead in rat race.

    Deceit is so much necessary to hide one's flaws, to make your special' ones happy or just make your child follow the 'rules'.

    Lie gives you power as well. Falsehood may help construct bridges even with enemies. It's a fake fake world; weirdos can go to the lowest extent to get any type of profits by hook or crook.

    Fabrication and falsehood may give a giraffe neck perhaps held high, but what's the use of a such disgraceful head who cannot wear a garland although it's in the sky

    // Liar liar shouts my heart,
    what can I do to get a start
    When even the originals are
    colored to beautify
    C'mon friends who will question
    why to falsehood when the
    seeker himself lies//

    Voice Of Lie

    I arise for multiple reasons
    But still I'm recognized as evil to everyone
    I don't know why I'm used so frequently
    even when I'm known for malevolent &
    diabolical

    I'm very receptive to others at time when
    they wants to play hide & sick game,
    sometime with intention of having fun
    otherwise for malign intention

    Please note that I'm not only used for wicked
    reasons but also to protect one's interest
    Because there are swindlers roaming around
    to get the clue & rip the advantages

    One of the common reason for frequent use
    of mine is fear, fear of not trusting oneself or
    not being trusted by others

    My presence is very effective but it doesn't
    last for long, sooner or later, people find
    me to punish the offenders.

    Voice Of Lie

  • x_alisha_x 22w

    Why do we lie

    Please don't leave,
    She cries into his arms,
    He answers in silence,
    She weeps some more,
    Leaning deeper into his comforting hug as she waited for his response,
    He was confused and afraid of what he should say,
    The truth is something that hurts, and a lie does the same,
    A decision formed in his mind,
    And he choose to lie,
    I won't he promised,
    But why do we all lie,
    When at the end we've to cry.

    I remember this saying from a movie,

    "It is not that truth is bitter, but since lie is sweeter we feel truth is so"

    Why do we lie???

    Because all we need is to prove the inner self what the truth is. Even if we lie a multiple times, the inner self knows the truth, and there we wouldn't need any explanations to prove the existence of the truth!!!

    The best policy

    Adhered to principles
    of a stringent rule,
    Attached to the lessons
    of a disciplined life,
    Amazed at the exactness,
    of an honest personality,
    Allured at the precision,
    of a truthful deed,
    We live a life that speaks,
    of how we appreciate truths !!!

    Haven't we wished,
    "what if we heard only the truth,
    the clear transparent truth,
    from all people around ??? "

    Haven't we dreamt,
    "what if we were obligued,
    not to speak the truth
    everytime??? "

    Truth isn't fear,
    Lie is a less honest courage...

    Truth isn't bitter,
    Lie is a less honest sweetness...

    Are we obliged to speak truth???
    Or are we punished by lie???

    Its the truth;
    "We all lie!!!"

    But why ?!?

    What is that bad-angel doing,
    when it asks us to lie...???
    What are we doing to our self,
    when its asks us to lie...???

    Yeah... We still know...
    Truth can't be escaped from...
    Lie can't hold longer..
    Still we lie !!!

    A lie is a lie,
    but not to the self that speaks,
    not to the soul that agrees,
    not to the spirit that lets !!!

    And that is why we lie...
    Because how far the lie takes us,
    Doesn't change the self,
    Doesn't alter the truth...
    And all we need to prove
    is to our 'self' !!!
    Even if we lie a multiple times,
    There is,
    this one self
    that knows the truth,
    and it is this courage,
    that in the court of self,
    we shall prove the truth,
    at any time till death,
    with no witnesses,
    with no proofs,
    that doesn't insist us
    to speak the truth always !!!

    #we lie ever!

    We lie by thinking we will correct our mistakes by the next time!
    We lie because we don't want to get insulted by others!
    We lie to get escape from that spot!
    We lie because we think it doesn't bother that much!
    We lie because we don't want to spoil our pleasant mood!
    We lie because sometimes our genuinety get unnoticed!
    We lie because we are afraid of rejections!
    We lie because there is no appreciation for confessions!
    We lie because sometimes our genuinety seems to be lie!
    We lie to support the team in which we are part of!
    We lie inorder to maintain our prestige!
    We lie because we know people will always be a people and will never be a God!

    Topic of the Day:- why do we lie?

    My submission for Challenge_3 @ovais43

    we lie because people don't want to hear the truth;believing in falsehood anyway

    we lie because we lack courage to tell the truth;
    hiding weakness anyway

    we lie to save a healthy relation;mastering fakeness anyway

    we lie because we feel people won't understand us;hiding pain anyway

    we lie because we fear facing the crowd;
    living like a coward anyway

    we lie because we don't trust people;letting ourselves suffer anyway

    we lie because we fear about the consequences;
    making life itself a lie anyway

    Honest lier

    A common word among every human
    A natural talent
    That we all possess
    Some are obsess
    No matter what, the simply can't be honest
    Especially in South India
    I went there to study at 12th grade
    Made great friends within one week (so I thought)
    Only to find out at the end of the year all the nasty rumors they had spread about me
    Yet they have the audacity to talk to me
    A reason I hate myself is that
    Even though I know they were lying straight through their teeth
    I still choose to talk to them, can't help but put a smile on my face like nothing ever happened..

    Like the devil she was crushing souls
    Impregnating fear for the longest of times
    And the menacing smile always intact
    Mercy, not a word in her dictionary
    Her worst was put out to the world
    People flinching away from her way
    And cringe with every word she spells
    And she loved it, loved the way they
    Quiver and shrink back in fear
    And the satisfaction that she's safe and sound
    By the way she is, her joy knows no bounds.

    But everytime she looks in the mirror
    She couldn't miss out the light trace of her halo
    That once she wore so proudly but not anymore
    For she realised, she was on her way to death
    With her heart on the sleeve and her halo gleaming
    She couldn't get herself to smile like once she used to
    It pained her to see herself changing
    But she couldn't pin it on her, to take responsibility
    Because she needed to adapt the way the world wants her to
    So that any conflicts and agony can be avoided
    And now she's fluent in disguising.

    She doesn't see where life is taking her anymore
    But she's willing to take a chance.

    Do we lie to conceal our gloominess,
    Or to reveal our enmity?
    Are lies said to cover up our terrible blunders,
    Or to divulge our humbleness?
    Do lies gives us pleasure,
    Or do they lacerate our soul?
