Some People




Lying Eyes

*image source:


When at the start of day
onto their face is pasted

Big phony smiles it seems
their lives are all but wasted

As through the minutes and hours
if to each goal is hasted

Where is there any time left
for the good things to be tasted?


When the pretense is always there
of having too much to do

And they don’t ever take time
as they go rushing on through

How will they see their life
are being voided as true?

Have not these same questions 
ever also occurred to you?


What is the big hurry?

Names and faces become blurry

As they scamper and scurry

Through their world of worry


What blessings God gives you

And what with them you do

If your life be lived untrue

You’ve wasted it through and through!

All Those Laughing

All those who are laughing
believe that I’m laughing too
but they don’t even realize
them I see right through

They’re all acting so happy
while stabbing the backs of
each one of those friends
they are supposed to love

With all their phony hugs
and fake kisses on cheeks
not a single one has
a thing that he seeks

Spinning their web of lies
out of the both sides
the mouth they kissed with
and the truth everyone hides

Two faced as can be
they all wear their mask
I am not being fooled
as in deceit they bask

With the best of them
a while I can pretend
but it doesn’t take long
to reach my wit’s end!
