Poetry: The falseness of dishonesty appearing to be real

Lying to yourself and to others is a form of self-punishment.

The falseness of such dishonesty appears real only to one who hates, and who doesn't love enough though. Hating is a refuge of the fearful.

This poetry explores further these themes. The truth can never be compromised. When you love fully, you also are living truly then from the truth too.

The truth can never be stretched past itself

Stretching the truth creates pockets in our mind
with holes that we will find leak out with falsehood.
Delusive dishonesty never triumphs over anything,
specious pretence allows good to not be so good.


Truth digs deep into love and then comes up for air.
Falseness buried outside of love needs air in its despair.
The combined effects of love & truth bring you into your own,
but encouraging dishonesty by living a lie makes you overblown.

A lie cannot live where the presence of loving truth lives,
yet truth never bears any grudges against any of these lies.
Truth does not have to be rare like a beautiful diamond is.
Truth is alive within you when you silence all of lie's replies.


The proximity of truth to love is immeasurably close.
The two are inseparable within their own closeness.
Falseness however lives many miles away to oppose,
dishonesty never comes close when its lie's exposed.

Falseness cannot be hidden inside

Senryu: about Falseness

Opposites attract
Is this truth, or not, in fact?
Inside is outside!


"Falsehood is cowardice, the truth courage."

This quote from Hosea Ballou, the American preacher, and writer, (1771 to 1852).

Is he right here though, does falsehood really stem from cowardice, or not?

Falsehood is a fear of embracing love and truth.

When you love truth, you have no falseness within you, or falsehood about you, and when you live from truth, you are no coward.

"A lie told often enough becomes the truth."

This is a quote by someone who was obviously not living by my philosophy. It was said by the Russian political communist leader, Vladimir Lenin, (1870 to 1924).

This might seem to be so of course at times, but the real truth has no room for lies anywhere at all within it. The real truth cannot be lied about, and still remain the truth.

My next poem proves this to be true. Every lie brings its consequences to you.

Dishonesty appears more real if you live from any un-truth

Poetry: Not living from truth brings you the consequences

Truth's not essentially alive in you until you fully love.
The consequences of not loving can bring lies into play.
Creating karma, or retribution, come what may, in dismay.
Consequences are then felt. They're dealt out as a result.


The same truth exists within small things & within large.
Truth is always there, and so are the risks of ignoring it.
Truth exists whether supported or not, by any of us, you see.
Truth, or consequences depends on what we dispense, or be.


It is said that even God cannot alter the truth as it is.
The consequences of us trying to do so only creates pain.
Discovered truths must all be properly fully understood,
otherwise a half realised truth remains love misunderstood.


The twisting of truth creates a very bitter pill to swallow.
The results of not being honest today will find you tomorrow.
Putting up more of the barriers and defences of adhered fear,
never quite cuts it, if truth is not all being held all dear.


Truth, fate, or consequences are not necessarily all related,
because the irresponsible simply blame their karma unabated.
Our actions often of course will lead us to certain results,
but the truth doesn't argue by arguing, or by trading insults.


The truth always remains the truth. Untruth brings consequences.
Truth only ever brings truth. Truth itself has no consequences.
Like love, we love for no reason. Likewise we must follow truth,
because it is the truth. Exultation comes not bolted to a result.

Great share ~ Spirited. Thanks. I love this: "Truth digs deep into love and then comes up for air.
Falseness buried outside of love needs air in its despair.
The combined effects of love & truth bring you into your own,
but encouraging dishonesty by living a lie makes you overblown."

Abundant Blessings to you!

More people should try writing Haiku, and senryu, they are only short and they are fun to write, thanks rama devi nina

For this is the very foundation on which love is built...Truth and closeness. Dishonesty and falseness, are the destroyers and the dry rot that brings love down...Well done my friend,

thanks Utah Jay,

once the rot sets in, only love coming back in can get rid of it, perhaps nothing else can do so.
