|This message is one that I was attempting to address in my poem "Suffering's Daylight". You made a very strict and undeniable present on the subject of being judgmental (prejudice), and active in both. I believe that lies are also born from the fear of being misjudged, and wrongly punished--a catch 22, if you please, but this does not justify the lie. We all must catch ourselves and judge ourselves more harshly; as you mentioned "even if it was only you" who knew that you were telling a lie--someone knew, and it is inescapable. With anything wrongfully done, it is most essential that a person maintain his or her sincere repent, and honestly need for forgiveness and better guidance or enhancement. This writing is like staring at the tip of a dagger that says "tell the truth, or die". Great presentation of thought and directness.|

|David, you have spoken so many truths about lies..We all do it even if we don't intend on it. By not saying something (omission) that is a lie..so now what if everyone always told the truth? There would be very many sad people, because in order to not hurt people sometimes a white lie helps someone..for instance, when your (girlfriend/wife) asks you if she looks good in what ever outfit she has on, and you think she doesn't, are you really going to tell her the truth and hurt her feelings??????? that's what I mean..sometimes a white lie saves face for the other person..lying for oneself to get by, well that's another story..that's deception and unacceptable..
Wow you got me going on this one..I always knew when my children were lying, sometimes not my ex husband obviously because he is an ex now..lol
Good work here, you got the den worked up..lol
Peace, love and light,

|The title says it all!! I could actually see that in one of those 100 Thoughts About Wisdom books or Quotable Quotes. Something to that effect. Nice work.|

|Anyone who says they never lie is a liar! Anyone who claims not to be a sinner is the worst culprit of all. Well penned and truly thought provoking.|

I like the gradual shift that takes place as the poem progresses; for me, it becomes more meaningful and spiritual with each stanza, and ends wonderfully.

|ummm...no one i suppose intends to tell a lie....maybe to save oneself one gets into the impulse .. Nice thoughtful write. Good wishes David|

|I Love This David! It is hard for some to look into ones own
mirror but it is great to do so! I still remember my very first lie!
I remember it because it made me feel so incredibly awful.
Lies are masterful trickery to steal from another the values
of worth that the deceived deserve in their life...which is honesty.
It is a horrible truth to feel when someone has lived a lie-
when in fact they thought it was the truth...
I collect those stones
