This is Why

The truth is what I wish to tell

This is what I most desire

Try as I might, I always fail

This is why I am a liar

The truth to me is very hot

Raging flames from the fire

Saty and burn? I'd better not

This is why I am a liar

I am a poor man with truth to sell

I look around, but find now buyer

Look at me, can't you tell

This is why I am a liar

It's simple yet speaks volumes. Nice imagery.
