Theme: Contemplation

Truth and Lies

If spoken honestly,
The truth always creates troubles
But for the time being;
When spoken truly,
Lies seem to set the things right
But for the time being.

The former is bitter at the top
Yet sweet at the bottom,
While the latter looks so sweet,
The venom lies within,
The hidden dragon of falsehood
Drags and drops us down,
Swallowing all the mutual ties and
Relationships to a premature death!
