True words are never spoken from lips that lie within fear.

Ears cannot listen to whispers of devotion from lips that lie within fear.

Hearts cannot believe feelings let out from behind lips that lie within fear.

Souls cannot fly on the winds let loose from lips that lie within fear.

Eyes cannot see lips that lie within fear.

Feet cannot tread on the path thrown down from lips that lie within fear.

Those lips that lie within fear are the lips of a coward.

They are the lips of selfishness, bred for a lifetime in order to protect what is not worth protecting. 

Empty words spoken from lips that lie within fear, are the arsenal of the manipulative mind.

Empty words that are only formed to captivate the imagination, conquer the heart and win the game.

Empty words can be held on to by the meek. Empty words can be twisted by the lonely. 

The hardest lesson to learn will be that cherished words spoken from lips that lie within fear were never true.
