"A Lie Is A Lie"

Updated on September 10, 2013

"A Lie Is A Lie"

Sa children we were told to never lie, because a lie is a lie.
Sa children we were told to never lie, because a lie is a lie.

"A Lie Is A Lie "

A lie is a lie

Whether it's a little one or small, short or tall.

A lie is a lie

That's the truth of it all

A lie is a lie.

When you tell a lie, it picks up momentum and in the end.

You surely cannot win.

A lie is a lie.

You told a story, but the truth did unfold

This habit of lying is starting to get old.

A lie is a lie

If you tell one, you will have to tell two or three.

This act of lying is getting next to me.

A lie is a lie

The art of lying is a never ending story.

That will definitely keep us out of glory.

A When you start lying, you have to keep it up

Then everyone knows you have broken your bonds of trust.

A lie is a lie

We all know that lying is like a contagious germ

That causes everyone irrefutable harm.

A lie is a lie, not telling the truth.

Is just an old alibi that started from our youth.

      well to say about telling a little lie, well yes I used to years ago but when I realized that GOD does not like liers I soon stopped,to tell lies it does not help the situation as we all know you must remember what was said.

      Your hub very intersting and well put.

      God loves all

      CO,

      Nice job! I took particular notice of this line--"The art of lying is a never ending story." Some people really make lying an art.

      Wow - Look at you - a gorgeous and magnificent woman! Great photo. And a great hub. As you create your marvelous poetry, you really lay it on the line. Like "Judge Judy" has said, many times, "If you don't lie, you don't have to remember what you say". Thank you creativeone, for a much needed message. Rated up and awesome and beautiful. :)vocalcoach

      I totally agree. Once a lie is told it snowballs and the trust has gone. I guess people tell lies for what they consider a very good reason and I guess they need a very good memory too! Great work.
