Lying is a poison,
floating in the air.
It settles in our veins,
and corrupts everything.
It is a plague,
and everyone's diseased.

Ernest Hemingway: If it's bad, I'll hate it. If it's good, then I'll be envious and hate it even more. You don't want the opinion of another writer.

I like the meaning, and how it's short but sends the message.  You're a talented writer[:

Why am I fighting to live, when I'm just living to fight. Why am I trying to see when there ain't nothing in sight. Why am I trying to give when no one gives me a try. Why am I dying to live, when I'm just living to die.

That is so true
