You knew it wasn’t true

We don’t always mean to, but it comes out anyway. We were all taught not to tell lies. Well, that’s easier said than done. ”But it was only a little lie.” That’s how it gets started. Little ones end up being bigger ones. They are all the same. Please, don’t point fingers because we’re all guilty of not telling the truth at some point in our lives. As long as we’re here on this planet, we’re going to make mistakes. There’s no getting around to it. Because we were born in sin, but that doesn’t mean we should dwell in it. Sometimes, we’re so ashamed of what we said or did. It hurts so much, we wish we could hide ourselves forever and never look back.

We’ll be sitting around and what comes up? Something we said or did that didn’t seem to matter at the time. Well, if possible apologize. But some of us can’t do that. I suppose it’s pride or shame. We’ll look back and say, ”Why didn’t I do this or that?” We get so angry at each other. But sometimes, those feelings are so deep that no matter how many times you or the other person apologizes, it will never be enough. They can’t or won’t let it go. No matter who was right or wrong. It’s one of those unfortunate things that we should think about.


A Lesson to Learn

Lisa sat down in a corner and started crying because she knew all along who’s the guilty one here. She can hear her mother say, ”Girl, don’t sit there and tell another lie.” But it didn’t register. When she stole that money, it didn’t register at the time. Lisa couldn’t look into the judge’s eyes, she couldn’t face her own mother. Serving 10 years for stabbing an innocent victim could have been avoided if only Lisa had listened. Like so many others, Lisa never thought that she’d get caught. She had been stealing, fighting, and lying for way too long. At 23, she’ll be spending all those years in a prison cell. The people she ran around with are probably somewhere laughing at her because after all, they didn’t get caught. But you’ll reap what you sow. And this maybe a lesson that she’ll finally learn the hard way.
