Lies V.S. Honesty

Lies V.S. Honesty

The mercy of tiny white lies
Causes relief in child’s eyes
People need them some times
To lesson the blow of crimes

Honesty I admit must have the right moment
Speaking out of turn will cause needed atonement’
Lying is not best, but puts minds at rest
can cause hearts to stop within their chest

Truth and lies are two faced
Can be loved or disgraced
So chose your words with care
Do your best to be fair

Living in lies, Honest goodbyes
Creating breaking ties in all the failed tries
To be only honest or Only just a liar
Being true to one, you’ll live over fire

Tomorrow, A hot new evil nursery rhyme yep yep come check it out 😛 it might actually have something to do with Humpty Dumpty >.>

    you know i think truth is always better…its just not worth the hurt, even if the lie seems like it will help…

      I don’t disagree truth is always normally the best option, but telling your kid when he gets a B- on a test that he didn’t do a good job is also disheartening, lies with encouragement can make all the difference. I don’t liars on big things but on the small things where a lie can make someone feel better I am beginning to understand lies are not all bad, but most of the time the truth is always best.
