Brutally honest

Talking about something unpleasant yet nice,

Makes me wonder about those without disguise,

Who never fail to stand up or rise,

They are the honest ones who struggle to strive.

World today loves those who lie,

Not just for flattery but also while passing by,

Honestly, these are the people who are fake and shy,

Why not be honest? Even if brutal, just try.

I understand that at times lies are needed,

Try and understand what my words are being feeded,

When all other routes and plans are defeated,

Or when a lie is all that the person needed, lie.

I don’t know what you will make out of my words,

Hope not something wrong or absurd,

Just be honest as far as you can,

Brutally honest, your Poet with the Pen.
