Yes we lie

Yes we lie

When we say we are not hungry when people offer us food we cannot have
When someone is wearing something outlandish, and compliments make a day
When we tell our little kids we are not tired and can play that last game with her
When we say  "I have done this"- to save a young nervous trainee in front of a client

Saying no to that last piece of  bread  when we know there's not enough to go around
Smiling bravely when our heart breaks
Being brave when our souls are crippled

Hiding that tear
Ignoring that insult
Pretending not to know that there are things being carefully left unsaid

We lie
That's what makes  us bond
Shows our love
Our strength

Yes, it's ok to lie
At times.
