Its a sequel of the post written here so for a better experience, please read this first.
So you say one should always tell the truth huh?
Truth always triumphs and truth and nothing but the truth?
Well heres a reality check
You CANNOT tell the truth and facts all the time.
Its not safe. Its not sublime.
For one, people cannot, I repeat, CANNOT digest the truth.
Its a moralistic demand that decays with your youth
Try tellin your ‘sugar’ that his offer for weekend cookin is an approachin doom
Or your neighbour that her son is not anyone’s dream groom
Will you tell your boss his sense of humor is in permanent state of coma
His jokes havnt changed since days of yore
And his one liners aren’t witty anymore.
But no you won’t.
You’ll stand with glass of champagne in your hand
and smile as far as your mouth can bend.
And what when its only about you and yourself
Telling facts to all is making vulnerable oneself
Should one and all know what scares you the most.
That when you have nightmares, you wake up crying and watch sunrise hugging your bedpost.
You cried buckets full watching Shreik 1, 2 and 3
Imagine tellin this to your friends, boy you’ll never hear end if it! 😀
Will you let him see how much his words hurt you?
Betcha you’ll laugh your way away saying ‘No big deal’
He’ll never know it was all a ruse.
Lying is defensive mechanism, it helps retain your pride
People tend to hurt. If you buckle, they’ll jump to ride
So for the better good of others and you
Lying is telling truth, a wee bit skewed.
