A Scrumptious Lie...

A Scrumptious Lie...

Folks are hungry for truth... May I tell you a secret?

I have an increasingly-extinct superpower... I'm allergic to lies...

The bigger the lie, the sicker I get... Even white ones make me itch...

Sadly, many have embraced deceit and candy-coated lies by accepting a poisonous slice of the Devil's pie... Mmmm... what a scrumptious soul tie!

They hastily and heartily gobble it all down....Willingly taking directions from a selfish clown...

But there's money to be made... no time to live, right... They're more focused on living it up with all of their might...

Eventually, Karma's mama, named: 'Miss You Reap What You Sow', will inevitably knock on every 'Little Bad Wolf's' door...

And then Integrity, Righteousness, and Good will rule once more.

***Hi All: I am technically still on a Vocal writing break. I just felt an urgent need to release this message... Have a gorgeous 2024 Everyone!!!!🎉

Love, Tiffa G.

    Love this! It made me think of my brother, a sweet soul who's also highly allergic to lies. If we could all have a little more intolerance for fibs the world would be a better place!
