The truth stood downcast in the lie

The truth stood downcast in the lie
There was no answer as to why 
The falsehood was the protection 
Honesty could mean rejection 

They did what they could to get by
The truth stood downcast in the lie
Lies would cover up all the fear
If there's risk of losing what's dear

Trust was lost in fabrication 
For means of self preservation 
The truth stood downcast in the lie 
Sometimes the rules do not apply 

Many ways the truth is hidden 
Sometimes what's true is forbidden 
There'd always be a reason why
The truth stood downcast in the lie

Tanis, so many aspects of the "truth" are coming out of hiding and challenging us to accept the truth that has been hidden in so many lies. Thank you for sharing this one in the contest.
