There're So Many Ways to Lie

People say it's easy loose what you love,
but to me, there's so much more to adore,
when the person you're looking at is yourself.

People say it's a must to know the world,
but to me, there's endless to find out,
and it would take our lives just to listen.

People say real friends takes a lot of effort to find,
yet to me, what is meant to come will come,
there's no need to hurt yourself over to search for it.

People say so much of working hard to reap what you sow,
yet to me, they are all just tales spun for little kids,
to drown them in make belief trust that spells insanity.
