Liar

Liar

A Poem by Underestimated
"

About the costume people put on to make themselves someone else.

"

I know a liar

And it’s me

 

I looked at myself in the mirror today  

And wasn’t shocked to see

I looked nothing like myself

And I never want to be

Outside is a costume

I put on each day

It covers nearly everything

And it even covers my pain

I’m just a picture

I’m never real

Each smile I make

Is something I practice in the mirror

And when you say I’m pretty

I think ‘Yes, I’ve fooled her.’

I’m the best kind of deceiver

Cause nothing you hear is true

And the real me is never coming out

It’s staying inside forever

Every good I have is on the outside

I’m just something you see

 

I know a big, fat liar.

And it’s me.

True and realistic. I go through the same thoughts that you have written here. Liars we all are, at some point in time!

A very good poem, love it!

Best lines of the poem :) This poem speaks out to me, as sometimes I feel like this, sometimes I act like this (not in lying though). Like pretending to be someone else, but then again doesn't every teen? I've learned to be myself now though and I try not to get caught in that social tide, its being free. Truly free. H ah ha, I could turn this into a poem :) love this one

very heartfelt words from someone so close, the format of how the words formed is amazing its like a medal in my imagination, well done. this is your best. its the lying game and everyone does it, for the fact that 'the reality of things we want to hide' is always there.

A very strong poem. I like the honest feel to the words. Sometime people can see themselves in a bad way. Lies are not good. Sooner or later a liar will get caught. Thank you for the excellent poem.
