The White Lies of Happiness

my poems

little lies to get by

little things locked inside

done in order to protect

somethings don't reflect

lies of happiness

when there's really emptiness

lies of peace and hope

but the truth, you can't cope

lies make it easy

when everythings crazy

little white lies told in love

as white and pure as a dove

for society teachs us all

to lie about every fall

every tumble and fumble

covered by lies to be humble

with these little white lies

we pretend and hide

that we're all just so happy inside
