the lie

The game

Lying… It is a game that humans have played for ages. We see it as a burden or as an insulting action, yet we all have a hand in the foolery. I think it stems from when we were younger. We spent the majority of our childhood reading fables, pointing the finger in the opposite direction when we got caught, and telling wise tales about our day. The moment when the lie tumbles to the edge of your tongue, is when your mind is giving you a thousand reasons why it makes sense to lie in the first place. What your mind doesn’t tell you in that split second, is that eventually the truth will surface. Problems will arise,  hearts will break, and people will feel betrayed. There is no backdoor to life, no hidden answers, no second chances. We get that moment. If in that moment we choose the wrong path ahead, then you have now created your new journey.
