OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAJudy’s poem for the Sandbox Writing Challenge just hit so close to home I had to reblog it. Actually has me counting all the little white lies I tell myself just to get through the day.

The Prompt:What have you done that no one knows about, or what are you afraid of exposing about yourself?


Necessary Untruths

A game of hide-and-seek
not behind chairs or under tables
within thickets or crouched in deep culverts
but obscured between sharp truths.
That white lie
you tell yourself
just to keep going.
