Truth yours or mine

Truth yours or mine

trouble with lies

doubt creeps in

when telling the

truth cry wolf

comes to mind


Truth yours or mine

open to interpretation
evidence black and white
stacks against you

I don’t want to believe
give anything to be wrong

Truth yours or mine

absolute does it exist
real fake true or false
multiple choice
mask on off show time

let’s put on the game face

Truth yours or mine

partners in crime

or real love

proven in time

soul sold for a dime

to wine and dine

Truth yours or mine

do you know


easier to swallow

beg steal or borrow

no worries tomorrow

Truth yours or mine

never assume
trust no one not me not you

web of lies

impossible to untangle

i forget


yours or mine

Why not share your story with me, because we all have one, don't we?
