There's no reason to tell someone false things simply because you don't know them, especially if all they want in return is your friendship. So I ask once more, why all the lies? Inspired by a friend.

Why all the Lies?


Why all the lies?

Your dishonesty I despise.

It builds a barrier where uncertainty hides.

So I ask again why all the lies?


Is it truly necessary,

To act more like an adversary?

Because we stand on unfamiliar territory

Is this why you tell me such a false story?


What I ask, is it too much?

Am I out of your league becoming a crutch?

The price isn’t at all high,

So why do you feel the need to lie?
