A Lie - Poem by Alon Calinao Dy
My father approached me by surprise
And telling me, he wants to go to a Casino.
However, he'd like me to tell a lie.
I said to my father,
''My mother has the right to know.''
My friend called me on my mobile
To tell his Girlfriend
That he attended the meeting,
But he was on dating.
I confronted my friend,
I said, ''Better inform your girlfriend
Because I just can't tell another lie.''
My wife told me yesterday,
She said, ''I am sorry.''
But when I looked into her eyes,
I saw lack of sincerity.
I told my wife,
''Hey, you can't lie to me.''
Now I ask myself,
Why everyone needs to lie?
It's the lie that I hate,
It's that lie that I don't want it,
It's the lie that I can't forgive,
And it's a lie that I can't forget.
After all, a lie is a lie.
Poet's Notes about The Poem
