I Hate Lying

I Hate Lying I hate lying; it’s a weakness. It shows a truth; that others rule me. If I have to lie; it’s to avoid pain, discomfort, and shame. To make you feel good. Slaves lie to the boss; to save their lifeline. But, to hell with him, and his profit. I live my life, to never lie. My freedom dies, under your rules. If I must lie, you won’t be near. I love to be free, and true to me. We won’t connect, cause you judge me. I’m filthy to you, so stay far from me. I will not lie. You will be gone. Your rules are yours; And my rules are mine. Me and God are fine, so swallow your stone. Stick to yours; and I’ll stick to mine. Your lies are your chains, and mine are mine. I will be free, from your lies that bind.
