Truth is lost in our society.
It’s constantly altered into lies
that we all think is true but isn’t.
Truth, although harshly real,
is transformed into gossip
confusing its listeners.
Sliding off the tongues
of well trained liars

Or is lying just covering up the truth
to make less people cry and wonder.
A superficial soft coating
protecting the hard bitter center.
So the truth can slide down easier
with just a touch of lies
down the ears of each person
that hears of it once more
