The world is not a deceptive place
for those who do not deal in lies.
What touch does the untrue have
upon the one who only deals in honesty?
Lies are like a shallow ripple of a skipped
stone upon the pond, quickly sunk, then gone.
To Live and Love and Be among the wanting,
the grabbers and getters, the takers, the
ones who live in such a fear of lack ~ Yet Still
maintain the reflection of honesty in the chaos!
Truth remains beneath the ripple of the stone,
and stronger still within the peace once it’s gone.
