    And I'm No Good At It

    Which is probably why I started to dislike it. That, and when I was a little kid I had a preoccupation with the concept of honor that I'd formed, and lying was a major breach of my standards for myself because of that. Which was probably odd for a young child, but I...

    Whyโ€™d I Want To

    I read a quote that said: “If you don’t lie, then you never have anything to remember.” I think that is so true. If you told the truth about everything, you never have to 1st think and formulate a story. Just be honest with yourself and others and life will...

    Kinda Got Beat Into & Outta Me

    When I was a young lad, we were taught not to lie. Of course I put it to the test a few times, but after the severity of those beatings, it's not something I can do ever again. No matter how old I get, you dig?

    No Lie

    I don't need to lie. I might not tell the whole truth, but it isn't my job to do so. If you ask me if it is raining and i say yes for you to find out that it isn't raining out side. I didn't lie because somewhere in this world it is raining and that is all you asked of me. Is...

    Honest To A Fault

    I don't like to hurt anyone but I will not lie to spare your feelings. I believe that you shouldn't ask if you don't want to hear the answer or if you won't like the answer. If you ask me something, I will be honest.

    Liars are the absolute worst. If you lie to me once I'll probably never trust you the same way again. I won't lie to you because I know how much it hurts to be lied to.
