A white lie seems to be harmless for we usually do this to make someone feel better. It is an act of doing something good for the others. But does it really?
We may consider real lying is the nasty one because of it being selfish; on the contrary, white lies can be more devastating. A white lie is like a fake mirror that let someone sees only the pleasing things.
Fake mirrors like the real ones can also shatter. And with this, beautiful images are instantly crushed with the liar to blame. The truth can be ugly but it is something to face. It can be hurtful but sooner or later they will have to accept it.
My poem ‘White Lies’. Have an awesome time my friend.
