Honesty: A Poem

I always hated honesty.

Like poison.

Avoided it.

To tell the truth’s unwise without good reason.

But now I vomit truth.

I’m casting out the vile in me,

I lose, and you lose.

I always hated honesty.

  1. Sadly, casting out the vile is not necessarily its own reward…

  2. Just as long as you don’t vomit your honesty on me, I hate the mess. I know it’s cleansing, but sometimes the unadulterated truth can be far more hurtful than a little lie, CS

    I try to be honest most of the time. I’m guilty of the little white lie! Cool poem – you write straight from the heart.

  5. I need to avoid honesty more often… some things should just be kept to ones self.

    I just threw up a bit (of truth) in my mouth. Love it.

    Vile bile.
    The truth hurts,
    but ooh baby, I like it!

    • I don’t always. Sometimes I like a little embroidery on it. Some rose tints. You can be too honest – I once contributed to someone’s depression, I feel, through doing that, and I don’t want to err again.
