Day I Told Pa A Lie


Day I told Pa a lie
The words reply like songs I like
Guilt blinded me like the night
Weakness came in mighty might;
Tears fought back with consoling words
Came all out in perfect chords,
Anger, like water in me swell
Myself I despise as though I smell;
If I had the future seen
I'd make a way around the scene,
Ousted by fear I hid the truth
Should have been loyal as Ruth;
For lies can't live forever long
But truth exists ever strong;
Albeit Pa believed what I mean
My conscience pricked hard and mean;
Cos if the truth itself reveals,
My face, forever, in shame conceals.
