It’s not easy to be honest
The simplest questions are hard
One’s like, what do you really want
How can I honestly answer
Not knowing what want even means
Things are relative and fluid
Understand- things change all the time
Fragrances transform into thoughts
Thoughts transform into images
Images are hopes in my mind
What of honesty- it’s a word
What of words- can they be honest
It’s difficult to be honest

    As the songs says, "Honesty, such a lonely word....":) It's true though it isn't easy to be honest, especially if we don't know who we really are, and why we are here. But there are wants everybody shares: to love and be loved, the search for happiness, and to be of influence upon others. In what way of course can be debatable. Thought provoking write, David! Good to see you write again. Caroline.
