Little White Lie - Poem by Cece Winters

Sometimes the truth hurts, but what if it's a little white lie?
To lie, is to make a false statement.
But what if you're just protecting a loved one?

Sometimes the truth hurts, but what if it's a little white lie?
To lie, is to make a false statement.
A lie given as a response for an opinion of something.

Sometimes the truth hurts, but what if it's a little white lie?
To lie, is to make a false statement.
A loved one asks how you feel about something, but you don't want to hurt them.

Sometimes the truth hurts, but what if it's a little white lie?
To lie, is to make a false statement.
Sometimes we lie so we don't cause rows - if we tell the truth of how we really feel.

Sometimes the truth hurts, but what if it's a little white lie?
To lie, is to make a false statement.
A little white lie saved hours of pointless rows.

Sometimes the truth hurts, but what if it's a little white lie?
To lie, is to make a false statement.
At times it's easy, at times it can be difficult to lie when you feel strongly about it.

A row, that didn't happen. A row that would bring up so many things
A row, which could cause so much damage.
All saved by telling a little white lie.
