 ~Naked Truth~

Naked truth hurts so you ask why
Being honest is better than a lie
Slashed in the past trying to hide
Behind layers covering truth inside
Pain, suffering, sadness, and fear
When exposed some might sneer
A chance we take when stark naked
Release the wounds that made you cry
Naked truth is always better than a lie

Release the wounds that made you cry
Naked truth is always better than a lie

I completely agree, Chessly. Thank you! Love, peace, and best wishes to you,

Yep. Nothing worse than trying to keep track of which lie you told to who. Gives me a headache. And who wants to be stark naked with a headache??? Patrick

a healthy attitude expressed through a superbly crafted poem ...

I definitely concur.

sometimes, perhaps, it's better to shade things a little. honesty can be rather harsh at times, one has to choose whether the price of naked truth outweighs the possible injury. i think naked truth in terms of one's own self-assessment is essential though. with others, it depends on the emotional investment. sometimes i roll with the old: "rather be serene and happy than right." good poem though, sparks a lot of thought and pondering.

It is true that honesty is the best policy but yes being honest has its price and can often be a price that is bound to hurt someone...

This is a powerful poem, Chessly. I love it! Truth frees the soul from all limitations and gives us inner power so that, for one thing, we can actually connect.
Reviewed by Ronald Hull
Good karma. So many lie--even to themselves. Unfortunately, the same people condemn truth. So many have died of neglect or fear, only to be found to be right after their demise.

I embrace truth in all its forms.

Reviewed by Amber Moonstone
It's exhausting to keep up the deception and lies. Wasted energy. Truth is the best way to always go.
It takes a lot of courage to stick to that.

Much peace, love and light,

"A mountain tis just a grain to climb, compared to climbing a grain of lies" (My quote) I put on a poem I wrote called 'Singing at Sea' expressing just what you have~

Hi Chessly, Honesty is always the best policy. A white lie is acceptable to avoid hurting someone. What would Jesus do? This writing like all of your writings was excellent.

Peace and Love

I hate liars and though the truth may hurt at least it's honest.

"When exposed some might sneer" <---let them I say
some are so plastic and fake I would expect
nothing less than a sneer...all the while they hide

a saying I always stand with:

"Hurt me with the truth
rather than destroy me with a lie..."

When people lie to us they are stealing trust...
or at least trying too...
