Don’t Lie (1999)
Don’t lie to make me happy.
Don’t lie to make me sad.
Don’t lie even though
The truth will make me mad.
I’ve heard your lies before
From you, and others, too.
But what you fail to realize
Is what harm your lies will do.
They raise my spirits one minute
Only to be dashed by reality.
I’m sure you have better ways
To use your creativity.
I hope and pray that today is the day
That you will tell me no more lies.
The truth is all I ask for
And it requires no alibis.
Please no more fibs, little white lies,
Or sweet words to appease me.
You’ll soon believe that telling the truth
Is all you need to keep me.

Afternote: This was my writing from TEN YEARS AGO. I was no doubt inspired by some people who shall remain nameless even though for the longest time they proved to be my muses. I pray that, like my personal relationships, my writing has IMPROVED!!! lol
