Be Truthful: A Poem to Possibly Inspire
Say it as it is, that's what I say
don't just appease and conform
even if your honesty does not pay
maybe raising some protesting storm.
World is full of lies and pretense
but we don't have to join that crowd
being truthful makes much more sense
truth whispered is better than lie said aloud.
Our healing starts by knowing where we stand
nothing gets really cured by a wrong diagnosis
it's mostly our mind that we have to understand
on that alone may depend our health prognosis.
Relations based on masking our true feelings
make of all our private world just one big lie
it's truthfulness making real our dealings
if we're not into some pie in the sky.
Politics is sickness of ruling by a deceit
those thriving on lies support that game
all that charade with nothing in concrete
gravitating around one careerist's fame.
So again, say it always as it is
you may not be liked but who cares
don't waste your talking to merely please
when truth feels as yours -- make it also theirs.
