    Removing the lies to find the truth,
    About ME,
    About life,
    And about YOU!
    Yet I find nothing except more lies that equals to less truth
    And brings less hope for the future, for me and you.
    See, one lyric can make a change,
    And one gaze into ones eye can make a lie seem so significant,
    When knowing that a lie is still a lie
    And the truth is just a lie covered up in gold or maybe silver
    Depending on what makes you quiver.
    It’s the significance of a lie that makes you sick inside
    Sometimes it even fools you into believing
    The deceitful dry cries falling from those "lonely eyes"
    Then turning around to slap yourself for being so foolish
    Whether you want to admit to it or not
    That person who fooled you deserves props
    For deceiving a “smart” individual like you.

    Now that I am becoming a woman
    I begin to distinguish a boy from a man
    And
    A little girl from a grown a*s woman
    I am beginning to distinguish old petty conversation
    From more deep and intellectual conversation
    No more “One” when I hang up the phone, dropping it from my cold hands
    But, instead, I sing, “Until we meet again...”
    I am beginning to understand that true beauty is the honesty
    And acceptance with yourself
    And not just these beauty queens who are left to mold on someone else’s shelf
    There’s a big difference when it comes to physical attraction
    And mental attraction
    Anyone can have a face of roses
    But having the ability to stimulate minds with a simple whisper….is golden
    YES! It’s time for a change
    If not physically
    It has definitely got to be mentally
    Because that’s all we really have in this skeptical world
    OUR MINDS
    And it takes time
    To know that in time you will be content with YOU
    Never give up on searching for the truth
    Because the one that is holding it, might be you
    The one who will turn this world around, might be you
    And the one to find out that the significance of a lie is the truth
    Might just be YOU!

    Finding the truth behind that lie, can be the discovery of a life time. Anything unknown can be scary, but it truly can set you free. The way you conveyed this rang so true. Welcome to Destee, and do flow on.
