# In plain sight I lie

Riddle me this:

Many have tried me,

And many failed,

Many make me,

And in plain sight I lie,

My secret bound tight, I ask you, what am I?

HINT

Not lie as in to tell a lie but to lie down or upon

Many have tried me,

Many people try to answer riddles

And many failed,

Many people fail at them

Many make me,

There is a certain website called puzzling.stackexchange.com where people make riddles

And in plain sight I lie,

Answer is obvious once revealed, making it seem as if in plain sight.

My secret bound tight, I ask you, what am I?

As a riddle, I never easily give up my answer

• Could you explain why you think that? Answers without explanation are deleted.

You are:

A lie

Many have tried me,

Almost everybody has lied at some point

And many failed,

There are many times where a lie is not fallen for,

Many make me,

You can make a lie just as you can try to lie

And in plain sight I lie,

Lies lie. Not much to explain here.

My secret bound tight, I ask you, what am I?

The truth is the secret, as a lie will never expose the truth.

• Oh no, I was afraid of this, I hadn't clarified which lie it is. What I had in mind is not this. However, it makes perfect sense. May 26, 2016 at 17:41

I think you are:

a riddle

because:

many people try but they often fail because it's supposed to be difficult. many make me, like here on stackexchange. in plain sight I lie, my secret bound tight. The answer is hard to find, but it's always in the question.
