Lie Out Loud

I'm not sure where these words and sentiments came from tonight... somwhere deep inside I suppose. It's definitely inspired by moments in my own life and in the lives of young minds I've had the honour of working with. #mentalhealth


Lie Out Loud


I cry alone

But dance in crowds

I whisper truth

But lie out loud


I hide my hope

But make believe

I dare to dream

But daren’t achieve


I lose my smile

But play at bliss

I take my aim

But often miss


I walk so weak

But fake my force

I proudly speak

But hear remorse


I scream inside

But battle brave

I delve down deep

But I’m not saved


I cry alone

But dance in crowds

I whisper truth

But lie out loud
