Jar Of Truthful Lies



Quote of the day:

I'm an idealist. I don't know where I'm going, but I'm on my way.
-Carl Sandburg



I spy.

You see even after...
After all the goodbyes.


I don't like a good surprise.
I saw you and i didn't mind the cries.


Isn't love the greatest prize?
Fireworks and rainbows in the skies.


I was once told by someone wise...
There's a thing line between truth and lies.

I spy.
Jar of truthful lies.



Current Listen: Ciara -Never Ever Feat. Young Jeezy

  8. Ebony~!*: hey hey!!!

    leggy: Shucks thanks.

    Trybes: Appreciate that. Yes there;s love-but hate? I think more of it as deception,manipulation even. All in all there are a dozen different meanings to that poem (if you read meanings into it).

    chayoma: lots and lots i tell ya!

    Suru: I'm happy you like.

  10. i so dig this as well as relate to it..
    yes, there really is a thin line, indeed sometimes it looks like there's no line at all, one flows into the other and its difficult to know where one ends and the other begins..truth n lies, life n death, love n hate..
    that's deep, man, deep

  12. Now, that's PHAT! Nice lyrics and great rhythm. The deep meaning is definitely not lost on the reader as well. Lies and truths are not just separated by a very thin line . . . In fact, it is an invisible line. Deep stuff, man! First time here.

  15. There is indeed a thin line between truth and lies, but how are we to detect this in everyday life?
