Family Lies

You don't know my family or I
but we both have been hurt
by lie after lie.

This one told a story
praised God for his glory.

This one said she was well,
but her body was in hell.

This one said he loved his wife,
but he was causing much strife.

This one said he graduated school,
but the truth is, he's a fool.

This one said she liked to help others,
but she had fights with her brothers.

This one claimed to trust in Jesus,
but the way she treated the poor and us...

I told them I wanted to make a book,
one's head just shook and shook.
"You don't really want to do that..."
Family secrets made so many fat.

They ate to hide their blues
food like a pacifier soothes.
Didn't want family lies
under bright lights
afraid they would start endless fights.
