Why Lie?

Look at a flower
See how it blooms
From out of the earth
It suddenly looms

The petals are pretty
Not all that witty
Just something to look at
And make you feel glad

No pretensions
No creating of tensions
Merely reaching for the sky
And the sun up high

We could take a lesson
For we too reach for the sky
A lesson from the flower
Who never tells a lie.
