Lie: Hello Truth, tell me about yourself.
I am The Lie.
I am the opposite of you.
Truth: I am here all the time
And sometimes no one can see me.
I stand out in a crowd and people walk around me.
I am present at every meeting
And no one talks about me.
I am in every conversation
Without mention at times.
I feel unloved and do not get much attention at all.
To tell you the truth, at times I am jealous of you lie.
People get excited when they talk about you, at least for a moment.
Lie: Yes, but it makes them feel bad and then they don’t like me so much.
Truth: But at least you get an honorable mention in political events.
Lie: Yes, but then they write about me in the papers the next day and they question me.
Truth: Oh…And then what?
Lie: Then the person who is found out gets in trouble
And then they say they want nothing to do with me.
They say they hate me because I make them hate themselves.
Lie: Yes, I have to use that word.
I hear it all the time.
Truth: Well, I guess not being talked about or mentioned isn’t so bad.
At least when they find out about me it solves things.
Lie: Yes, and you get to stay who you are, Truth.
When they find out about me, they deny they ever knew me.
They try to make up stories and they throw me to the wind.
Some die by me, but they are fewer and fewer
since they claim their heads feel better without me.
Truth: Oh…I have nothing left to say…The truth is, you can’t change me.
I am what I am, and I never really change.
All I wanted was some recognition.
Now I feel like I don’t need it so much.
I am already happy.
I guess I just wanted to be remembered.
Lie: Oh, Truth, they will remember you.
They have to,
Otherwise, no one would sleep or enjoy their meals,
No one would have friendships or partners of any kind,
A child wouldn’t have anyone to talk to without you.
Truth – you serve a purpose.
When people find out about you, they can’t live without you.
Being a lie is just a lie.
I am not really here.
I just think I am.
I am not real and nothing about me is.
You are stronger than me.
You last longer than me.
Thank you truth, now I can rest.
I will try not to let others use me so much.
I think it is your turn now so we can undo the troubles that I did.
I think I can change my ways.
I want to be like you.
I love you truth.
