Absent Relief

A biblical injunction ringing true
Assures us once dishonesty's begun
A thousand future lies we then pursue
In the attempt to justify that one

How effortless to tell a "harmless" lie
When everyone around us tells them too
Inundate are we flagrant falsehood by
Until we most cannot discern the true

And some among us now deny exist
Any such absolute as truth at all
Always to every brother skeptic list
Relationship which this true heart appall

Which cannot seem unto life to adjust
Completely absent the relief of trust
