The Other Side Of Truth

The Other Side Of Truth short poem

I don’t like the sound of lies
But I myself speak one or two
With a poker face many times
Hiding the truth through and through

Still I preach honesty
Like I am a saint and divine
Pretending to stall tall in a swamp
When I just lost my spine

Dare someone hides truth from me
I point fingers and I never spare
Playing the victim card so loud
Blaming – people are not fair

Then, there is other side of truth
The one with shades of grey
The one that comforts you, me and everyone
But is hard to essay

And there is a lie that flatters
Ringing music into ears
But the one that is bitter and brutal
Pinches you for many many years

You decide what is good –
Truth, lie or half baked lines
The other side of truth is –
It changes shades depending upon sides
