Necessary Untruths

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.

    I read this daily prompt and I said to myself, “say what, have they gone mad.” Who in their right mind wants to share this type of information?

    Great job Judy.
