Little White Lies - Poem by Mokganedi Tatlhego

It is true that truth is painful despite its good
It is right that lies do help to brighten the bitter night
It is necessary to sometimes stoop to fend the painful truth
It is a fact that most fights lie in hands of little white lies

In the midst of my peers a little bend in truth lends me power
It’s the least of my worries as I reach my desire
I am in bliss as I made it through that very hour
To attain my goals with deception I do not tire

It’s the pain that results which bears insight
I have put on another burden in fictional victory
This has been darkness all along when I imagined light
And now I cry as I once again scribble a different story

Life is a path with endless dark gorges
Truth cuts through the gloom and ignites the way
Lies are a stumble away from the truth if sought
I stay robust on truth and not go astray
