I will not say,

What you want to hear

I learned a decade ago

The more we lie to others,

And even more ourselves,

The less we will know joy or peace.

Let honesty speak to the spark within,

If you feel rage, let it smolder.

The pain will propel you,

But my lies would kill you.

And though the choice is not pleasant.

The important ones should never be.

I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
