Hearts not eyes go blind
Words not actions stab you from behind.
Actions not words show you are blind.
Lies not truths break hearts
Truths not lies break relationships.
Lies to others are a one time business.
But lies to loved ones as a lifetime business
is deception’s full time business.
Deception a destructive business
prolongs lies’ lives for personal business.
After good morning how are you
deception burns loved ones with hurtful lies
sending them in different directions
misleading them with paranoia and worries.
A gift, a smile, and a kiss on the cheek
is all it takes to look good in others’ eyes.
A kind word, compassion, and understanding
is all it takes to be good in loved ones’ eyes.
Yet many say the right things
and do the right things
for the baddest reasons.
Looking good in others’ eyes
needs all that money makes.
Looking good in loved ones’ eyes
needs all that your heart shares.
Yet many look good in others’ eyes
but are bad in loved ones’ eyes.
Lying comes naturally to many habitual liars
but deception is maleficent souls’ trademark.
