    Hiding yourself behind lying eyes
    the real you was no surprise

    You only thought you'd managed to hide
    what you really felt inside

    So sure you were that I couldn't see
    the way you really felt about me

    And I let you tell me all your lies
    while you sat and looked into my eyes

    So smug, so sure, you played your part
    but I always knew within my heart

    That in a matter of time I would see
    the chameleon that you hid from me

    Changing colours nearly every day
    never quite meaning what you say

    Hiding cleverly behind your abilities
    telling lies in colour just for me

    Kitana.......

    Your writing impresses me so
    I like what you say
    and the style of the flow

    This here is excellent.

    ANOTHER LYING TONGUE

    BEFORE THEIR EYES THEY CAME UNDONE
    BECAUES THEY BORE FALSE WITNESS
    AND SNUCK IN UNDER THE RADAR
    CONCEALING THEIR ETHNICITY
    IN ORDER TO REIGN OVER PEOPLE
    WHO THEY SAY THEY ADMIRE
    BUT ACTUALLY ENVY
    SPEAKING OF TRUTH
    HAVE YOU TOLD ANY LATELY!
    I STAND BEFORE HE WHO JUDGES
    DAILY

    BUT YOU BELIEVE IN NO SUCH BEING
    YOU DENY YOUR ETHNICITY
    AND LISTEN TO OUR STORIES
    WITHOUT ANY GLORY
    YOU LAUGH AND TELL YOUR
    TRUE PEERS HOW EASY
    FOOLING THE COLORED IS
    THE COLORED........
    SPEAKING OF TRUTH , HAVE YOU
    TOLD ANY LATELY!
    I GIVETH STRAIGHTLY
    SO SAD WHEN ONE WHO POSED
    AS A FRIEND, BRINGS THE
    FRIENDSHIP TO AN UNTIMELY
    END. SCATTERS GOSSIP IN THE
    WIND
    TO NO GOOD END
    WISH YOU PEACE DEAR FRIEND!
    :peace:
