For Example: love, art, fashion, friendship and etc.

It happened to me

It happened to me
that a car salesman,
or a policy vendor,
or even family or friends
just tell a part of the truth
about something.

At times I wonder to where
has people’s integrity gone,
when people talk
as it looks the most prosperous
for them and cut on the truth.

Still the truth
sets you free
and I want to gain
much more freedom.
