Why do we lie?

Why do we lie?

A Chapter by Elena
"

A poem about lying, liars, and just lies. The author is not a fan of lying. The narrator is talking to herself about the complications of lying.

"

Dear, sweet soul why do I lie?

Why do others lie?

Well, we lie because lying makes life “easier,”

One would say.


However, lies do not make tears any drier,

Or make the time of suffering any shorter.


Why do I act like an actor?

Why am I cluttered and confused?

Oh, how I cannot be amused…


These lies that I create!

All they do is complicate!


You would think that lies could make life easy,

But they stress, kill, and make you angry.


You have regret each time they grow…

Why does this have to be so?

This is not the way life should go…

This is a good one. That's a thoughtful poem you made about lies. It's true that we thought that lying would make life easier but we just make our own life more difficult.

People lie because "lie" is the truest thing that really exist and is indispensable in this world.

Don't worry, you did not offend me.
I loved this poem-it was so down-to-earth and realistic.
I love the way you use examples of how people lie.
Great work, keep it up. I can't wait to read your next poem.
