We hear them.
We tell them.
We feel them.
Are they true?
Sometimes even I can’t keep track.
I tell a lie.
Is it the truth?
All of the lines are blurred.
Why do we lie?
To protect ourselves.
To protect each other.
But are we ever really helping anyone?
What happens when they find out that we tell lies?
When is a lie too big?
What are we allowed to lie about?
Who are we allowed to lie to?
Is honesty really the best policy?
Do we lie when we care about someone?
Or do we lie when we don't care enough?
I ask you a question?
You answer quickly.
Is that a lie?
Deep within my soul I believe you are lying to my face, but what if it isn't?
I don't want to believe that you are lying.
Just tell me the truth.
Live without the fear.
If you care about someone, tell them.
No more lies.
I cant handle the lies anymore.
I want the truth.
