Lying is common.
Most use it daily.
Some to get out of trouble.
Some to hide something they did.
Or how they feel.
How they truly feel.
People ask if they are okay.
And they say yes.
Not because thats how they feel.
But because its what everyone expects.
They expect them to be okay.
Not to be truthful.
Not to say how they truly feel,
A lie is common.
It masks just like a smile.
It makes others happy.
Which is good, of course.
But it doesnt help the pain.
A lie is a mask.
I hate lies.
