Truthfulness, lies or half truths?

Keep it alive

Is it okay to tell a lie if it is to prevent someone from unhappiness?

Or is being truthful at all cost should be our policy. As they say, honesty is the best policy, we should follow it regardless of any harm it may cause. There are different takes on this from different people. Some support the fact that a little white lie when told to stop someone from a hurt, is permissible.

The problem with lying is that once you get on this train, there is no stopping it. If I can tell a lie to save someone from getting hurt, I can lie to save myself from embarrassment. This way of thinking can lead us into deep quagmire of deceit.

We also have the people who have different versions of truth. They think that if one tweaks the truth a little, rearranging the factsadding a bit…

For the lost


In fog’s night,
there’s a shimmer.
A hint of hearth and home.
A muted invitation
to one who walks alone.

Far away from native shore
and succor of the soul.
Harbouring a longing for
the things that make us whole.

Fishing for remembrances
of paintings in the mind,
but finding only semblances
in images unkind.

And now they come, in elder times,
these showings of a land.
So often gleaned from ancient rhymes
that lead us by the hand.

As if to say this life of yours
is wanting for its bed,
so be untroubled, free of chores,
and rest your weary head.

We assume we are immortal,
with endless time
and we have in our possession
an eternity of charm

We keep spinning the wheel of life
running blind,
aspiring to achieve the next big thing,
forgetting love,
ditching relationship,
forgoing deeds

And soon we crush
the simple joys that life bestows
postponing happiness
and ignoring blithe

But then sardonic life ditches us
and lying on the sick bed
every materialistic possession
appears lackluster and bleak

All that matters then
are love and some moment of bliss
sadly though in life’s rat race
a lifetime vanishes
leaving behind
a saddened heart
and despaired eyes

Simple silence

Come read of the forever love of a Mother!!!

The Journey of My Left Foot (whilst remembering my son)

Saturday 15th December


It’s wonderfully warm

Though cloudy today

Decorated the tree

Ready for Santa’s sleigh


It’s different at Christmas

Without you here

There’s a simple silence

In our hearts you’re near


We miss you so much

Precious Angel son


Breakfast ~ coconut pecan scone and starfruit

Bendy palm trees

A cloudy sunset

My sweet Angel

Always loved, always remembered

A little, festive tree
