The First Lie

The First Lie
By Ada Ireland


It wasn’t when someone first told me,
“Not everyone tells the truth,”
That I started doubting people.
It was when I told my first lie.
I saw how easy it had been.

A few years and some lies later
I realized,
The world wasn’t making a liar out of me.
I was making a liar out of the world.

Since then,
I’ve been trying to tell only the truth.
Sometimes … I fail.
