Little White Lies…
Funny how such a simple phrase can have so much power.
Those who fabricate untruths have been able to convince themselves that their deceit is justified…because it is just a little white lie.
How does a wife tell that to her husband? How does a brother tell that to his brother?
How can we expect our children to be better than we are…when they see through the little white lies?
In a world that is getting smaller each passing day, thanks in part to the instantaneous ability for information to be spread…how can a little white lie remain thus?
With all of the video available? With witnesses? With the truth being exposed…
God help us to be better. To love more. To envy less. To be transparent. Let that one of you who has no sin, shame or closeted skeletons cast the first stone. Right.
Better to be a man/woman of dignity and poverty than a wealthy fraud who just can’t stop telling those little white lies.
It hurts so deeply when she is the one who sleeps next to you…bears your child. Promised that it was ‘til death do us part. It’s the truth that has died…
And in the memory of Marvin, I ask, “What’s Going On?”
