    Which one do I choose
    Pretty lie, or ugly truth
    What a decision

    Pretty lie looks good
    On the surface, but what looms
    Is truth you don't know

    Ugly truth removes
    The veil, honesty exposed
    In gruesome detail

    I'll choose ugly truth
    Heinous as it is, at least
    My eyes are opened

    Both choices are raw
    Pretty truth would be best, while
    Shunning ugly lie

    Sometimes life does not
    Hand you the easy decisions
    What do you choose then?

    When both would cause pain
    I'd choose the lesser of both
    Evils, then I'd pray

    The truth hurts deeply
    A lie cuts even deeper
    No difference in pain

    I take the high road
    I choose to do what is right
    Lies will dig your grave

    A conscience of clarity
    Is a soft pillow
    Truth is always best

    The truth can free us
    So says that saying of old
    But can we face it?

    Better to be poor with truth...
    Than riches with lies.
    Why live in the dark? :look:

    the sun is shining
    the earth can only flourish
    oh where is the rain

    why is truth ugly
    that ag-ed honest face shines
    soothes and makes us grow

    and those pretty lies
    look at those ugly deep scars
    no beauty lives here

    Once the cards are dealt
    And the hand of fate you see
    You can ride or fold

    To fold would be to
    Give in to the pretty lie
    Letting looks deceive

    Ride like the wind, free
    Take that ugly truth, release
    Let honesty rule


    Thank you ladies, my sentiments exactly...
