Those Curious Begin To Lie - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I've learned this,
About wanting to achieve happiness...
And having it stay in one's life.
There is always someone believing,
They are entitled to announce...
Every step that one makes,
Attempting to achieve their goals.

And become offended they do,
When their intensions are cut off,
From embellishing to others...
What they 'assume' is going on.

Leaving a nosey person,
Left subjected to curiosity.
Those curious begin to lie,
About their association.
And the ones who are true friends,
Do not create lies to pretend...
They know more than they do.
