 ~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

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 ...

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 12/28/2010
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 12/27/2010
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...
