The Truth

Everybody has secrets
Always something to hide
Once the truth outs
You can’t turn back the tide

Everyone has an angle
A perspective unique
Personal interpretation
Is where fact and fiction meet

We all have agendas
Everybody tells lies
We all manipulate the truth
When forming alibis

Sometimes you can see it
Uncertainty in the eyes
The truth is
Everyone lies

Everybody is devious
Everyone is sly
Its hard to know the truth
With all the things we falsify

Everybody does lie
And everyone lies about lying
That’s not moral indignation
Those are crocodile tears your crying

Everybody lies
Learn this lesson well
Everybody lies
The truth is hard to tell

    Nik, it is so very refreshing to see that someone had the courage to speak this truth. And truth is indeed all in our perceptions and the perceptions of others. This is a profound and excellent write...and that is no lie. :) (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
