A Disease That Keeps Spreading
Poem By Tom Maxwell
I'll never understand why certain people can't be totally honest in our world today,
it seems like a disease, that keeps spreading, in their every word, action, and way.
Many are harmless, they won't hurt you or commit a crime,
they just don't tell the truth, in the stories that come from their mind.
Everyone has thought's they hold in, and just keep to themselves,
why make up stories for reasons unknown, and lie to others, keep it on your shelf.
You can trick some people, off and on over a short time,
when the truth appears, they lose their respect for you in their mind.
If someone is a true friend, and honestly cares about you,
they will appreciate you more if your honest, it doesn't make a difference what you do.
Everyone goes through times, and events they are not proud of in this life's game,
we only have a few years on this earth, and the only things other's will remember you by is your trust, honesty, and your name.
