I watched a bloke lie

His family did not know.

He pretended his life

Was peachy perfect

When really it was going down the tubes.


I could have reached out

And help him through

But I was too close

I heard the lie

Sighed and walked away


What could I have done?

Shamed him to his family?

Called him out on the lie?

I just walked out

One footstep at a time.


There was a time in my life

When it was all going away

But I turned to the one who heals

The one who takes away the shame

And presses the delete key … to the past


I want to share the secret

That life with God is cool

But I don’t know how to tell him

It is all a bit close to home

I am praying for someone else

To share the Good News.
