When I was young and foolish 
I wanted more to be 
I would imaginate and exaggerate
Good things that happened to me

It did boost my ego and impress all my friends
But with bad advice I paid the price 
This story doesn’t end 

From this charade the price I paid 
Has a two-fold lesson learned 
Truth comes out -reveals the lies 
Credibility’s seriously burned

The ego that I hoped would rise
Was spit back in my face
With no surprise my friends despised
I was a real disgrace 

I never played that game again 
I can still recall the pain
My first lesson in integrity -
My actions had nothing to gain
