Lying is a like gateway drug…
It starts off with a little fib
Growing into something more complex,
Some call it a ‘white lie’
While others are becoming socially dependent,
It seems like an opportunity…
For some of these ‘educated’ individuals,
But rather it is bringing them down
With the rest of Humanity,
Going against the very morals of life
The thing which makes us Human,
Every moment we approach our unavoidable end…
Coming to the Realization of the fact
That this life is only temporary,
Lying made it seem like it would never come to its end
but in fact it only made its way more hastily
than one could expect
We are drowning ourselves…
With each step we take
We linger in deeper waters
Being capable of only treading for so long.
The harm which we have induced
By lying to not only ourselves,
But to each and every person
Who surrounds us,
Only to realize our errors
When it is ultimately too late.
We have drowned,
And brought humanity down with us
Into our graves,
Which lies deep below the sea
Just like the vast oceans
Which remain hidden
To us even today.
So Help Us God!
Unfortunately, a social ill has transformed into a social norm.
We have come to live in world where lying is supported by scientific studies, and proves how it is beneficial to one individual in furthering themselves in the capitalist society in which we reside. A sin which only leads to more sins, it is the deadliest of them all and that is : Lying\Cheating. It has many names, to explain the one and only sin capable of causing calamities. It not only harms the person who is lying, but also those who hear the lies and become victims themselves.
Tragedy, an utmost true loss we have come to today, a time in which no one sees the ill in this major sin. Where people choose to sin in order to gain worldly benefits which won’t do them much good for long.
