Strength to Lie

Days and nights don't differentiate

Her family told her she had to hide

To feed their blissful denial

She bought herself a floral skirt

And pretty earrings

But no one trusts the heels

Hearing ignorance everywhere she turns

No blouse or necklace can filter out their words

No one believes they're evil

For hating her

She waits silently, as they vote against her freedom

Call her every word their narrow minds can form

Love the sinner; hate the sin

Waits for the day she'll leave this place

Family

Friends

Tangents of love

Finally lose the strength to lie
