The Liar Inside
Poem By Natalie Clyne
Tears of anguish are what I cry
Every time you stand near by
You look at me with those eyes
How could I know you were living a lie?
Saying something, yet meaning different
Day-in, day-out, all the time
I always stuck by you
Believing what you said was true.
I asked you a question
A simple question it was
Yet you could not answer it
As the liar inside of you was lit
What you want from me
I cannot give
You ask me to be something I’m not
Please, just except me for who I am
Because I’m not about to change
For anyone, and that’s a promise
I listen to my heart and always have
That is how I know that I am doing the right thing!
