In an effort to explain

A lie, he told yet another.

He would protect himself

At all costs –

No matter who or what

Was lost in the process.

Like being lost in a foggy mist

Love & Peace be with you

Deeply sad... the lengths some people will go to, to be believed...
and they think it is to protect themselves, when really they are losing SO much more and hurting themselves deeply by losing the trust of all of those around them...

You penned truth that cuts deeply with these words.

This is so real. Some people would go on to tell lies until they convice themselves it is true, when everyone knows it's a lie.

I love this write! Thank you for taking the time to read and commenting on my work!

Man is born to save self and has a tendency from youth to lie. Truth is brought forth of genuine love for others and not the selfserving of self…beautifully written.

I believe a theif can only steal from you while a liar is capable of hanging you. In order to be a good liar one has to remember what they have said before as I have found people trap themselves between lost lies. Thank you for sharing Dawn.

A liar is a liar regardless of how you hear them and they'll repeatedly tell one after another. An interesting well worded writing.

Realism at it's strongest. That is always the way with a lie...they seem to breed only more dishonesty.

Yes, I wrote something similar entitled "Image and Illusion" several months ago - we share the same idea. Beautiful photo. Nice writing.

Lie on top of lie,, creates a pile that can no longer be hidden,, some just lie to themselves. so sad

One lie usually does lead to another - quite profound.
Reviewed by Bernice Lakota 6/6/2008
Beatiful and poignant, a lie breeds more lies because you always have to back up the lie with something---which is also another lie....
Reviewed by Jeanette Cooper 6/6/2008
This is such a true account of lots of people nowadays. I was taught that one's word is one's honor. Now people use and twist words until they forget what they've said--and certainly don't know who they are.
