Wall 18: Filing

with one comment


When you lie to someone, you do not deceive them.  You deceive yourself.  Even though you have staved off criticism, or belayed discovery of a fault, you are worse off than before.  You  are now a slave to that person, forever having to maintain that lie.  You chip away integrity, bit by bit, until you trip on the fragments as they tumble together about you.  You inhale the fine dust of your craftmasship, and you fight to stifle an embarrassed cough.  Lie to me, and I may not find out.  Keep lying to me, I may never find out.  But I will not lie to you.

Small wounds are a nuisance.  Many times, they can fall away with time.  Others, however, are more caustic, and can betray your comfort with every movement, every glance.  Metal filings can make you blind.  

Don’t be a marionette to your own shame.
