Lying is bad!

Or so They say

They’ll hate you;

They’ll despise you;

Cry wolf and They’ll turn a blind ear.


Lying is bad,

Tell them the truth!

Be honest and They’ll love you.

Or so They say


Lying is bad

But lies don’t hurt

So put on a filter and utter those words


Lying is bad?

But what if the truth hurts?

What would you do when you could kill with those words?


Lying is bad.

And the truth will hurt.

Be brutally honest, that scars them the worst.


The truth always hurts.

But I don’t care.

Although they will hate me;

I’ll be an honest man.

    I liked it! It seems like an evolution away from being a people pleaser. It is a willingness to be critical if necessary.

    "The truth always hurts" but it is a shorter way to live a happy life. Love your poem!
