Is life ever just straight up honesty? I was at a wedding and started thinking how people act... how they lie, how they brag, how they just love to appear better... and it's not just at weddings... it's also in the hallways of any high school, any school... :P ***Hope you like it! :)

Dressed up,
Egos high,
Eyes full of envy,
No one's going down without a fight.

Meaningless smiles,
Sugary words,
All held like shields, and, 
On our side, we hold our swords.

Nothing means much,
In this world of lies.
As long as we hear what we want...
No one dares look behind the eyes.

So we go on with the charade,
Not meaning a word we say,
Lies sugared on lies,
We fight to be better, to betray.

On this battlefield ballroom,
We dance a fight of wills.
So many meanings beneath the words we say,
And on we fight to see who has better skills.

Who comes out on top,
No one really knows.
But yet we go on, fighting,
Hoping no weakness shows.

Hope you like it! (:
