Honesty

a poem by tobias kerins, UK

Honesty is the first chapter of the book of wisdom
I meant what I said and I said what I meant
All cruel people describe themselves as paragons of frankness
Appearance blinds whereas words reveal

You can't lie to your soul
It takes strength and courage to admit the truth
Honest people don't hide their deeds
It is not easy to keep silent when silence is a lie

Honesty is a very expensive gift, don't expect it from cheap people
Better to get hurt by the truth than comforted with a lie
The truth needs so little rehearsal
It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one

If we are not ashamed to think it
We should not be ashamed to say it
You wear a mask for so long
And you forget what you were beneath it

Honesty is always the best policy even when it is not the trend
Where a fear of weakness always strengthens weakness
Don't change you mind because people are offended
Only change your mind if you're wrong

Honesty: The best of all the lost arts

What a Funny Old Name
