There are lies of different colors
There are lies of different colors,
not only black and white.
There are shades of gray,
that often may,
hide within the light.

There are bright and shining,
bold face lies,
that stare you in the face.

Then there are those,
that often pose,
in truth’s promised place.

There are darker sides,
that some may call,
a jaded shade of true.

A colored interpretation,
but it’s just their point of view.

Then there’s those cloaked in silence,
and whispered behind your back.

And those left lying for you to find,
to lead you from the fact.

That all those pretty colors,
cover the ugly lies.

And hide the truth and all it bares,
from your very eyes.
