Truth And Lies

Some poeple always tell the truth,
Some people never lie,
You lied you fibbed and told the truth,
You managed to make me cry.

It's not that very often,
When someone tells the truth,
the whole truth and nothing but,
I really can't believe you,
I've got to have some proof.

How could you go and do this,
You said you'd never hurt me,
Was that just another lie?
Because you've gone and made me cry.

I think you'll find that in this life,
You'll find two different sorts,
There ones that tell the truth
and ones that always lie.

The ones that tell the truth,
Will make you sing and dance,
The ones that tell the lies,
Will make you sad and cry.

I'm back! ! ! My name was hellp because my mother found my poems and back tehn i had poems that were alot more intense. about suicide, religion, and sex. My mom banned me from the site and made me delet all my poems. (my mom and family r VERY strong christians) i changed my name and deleted only some of my poems. My name was hellp cuz i felt like i was in hell and i REALLY needed help. i was so scared. I'v never been on the website for years and then i got an email today that sed i hada comment on one of my poems...i read all of the commments i missed and it totally inspired me to continue my poetry. I changed my name and i will try 2 pick up where i left off...i havn't written poetry since i got caught...thankyou so much for ur support
Wow. I graduated 20 years ago and you took me right back. Brilliant. You are my voice 20 years ago. I'd never want to go back there. Not for a million.
