I told a lie today
And it curled up inside me
Like a steel hard spring.
It was quite a clever lie –
No one guessed the truth.
They believed me ;
But I’ve carried the twist of it
at the centre of my body, all day,
and I think it’s expanding
filling me up,
making my eyes red.
Perhaps it’s going to uncoil suddenly
and burst me open
showing everyone what I’m really like
I think I had a better confess
Before I’m completely unwound.

Oh! It's only a poem. Seriously, i didn't told a lie today.
God Willing, i won't lie forever.
There is Arabic saying about this :
' Say the truth even it is hard '
( I'm just guessing the meaning )
You know, there is no 'white lie' in Islam.
So please, don't lie.
( A reminder to myself and you)
