Don’t play me

Youth got too many dusty answers, heard too many lies, saw too many bad plays.

Like all our younger selves, she deserved the truth. We all hurt her when we lie.

Wear a mask. Act the truth.

‘Ah, what a dusty answer gets the soul When hot for certainties in this our life!’
George Meredith Modern Love (1862)
