The Lonely Word- Honesty

Honesty can tear apart
Lay open my wounded heart
Make those hidden tears to start

Honesty can cleanse my soul
Wash me up and make me whole
Make transparency my goal

Honesty my voice has stirred
Though it is a “lonely word”
Because of it, I am heard

Honesty, so dear to me
The window through which you see
And what sets my demons free

Honesty, my sacred vow
I give to you here and now
'Tis my kiss upon your brow

Eileen Manassian Ghali

    No one would ever accuse you of dishonesty, you lay it all out there. Another good one Eileen.

    You said it...honesty can do so much...and sometimes it's painful, but in the end it's right. Hope you are well, Eileen.

    CALEB....I'm doing ok, thanks! Lots of pressure at work! LOTS! Felt like I was going under there for a while. Had two days to recover. Think I'm going to make it! Thanks for the visit!

    - Strange, but there are many who have come "long in life" with dishonesty - I had not been proud of it - A very good poem Eileen. - Have a nice day in the sun. - oxox / / Anne-Lise :)

    Anne Lise...HE is aware of it all! Dishonesty is not hidden to Him.

    You really can't lose when it comes to honesty... it may hurt and do a lot of damage, but in the end it's the only stable thing to go off of. You portrayed that so elegantly in this poem... loved it!

    Yes....Cecilia...Honesty has gotten me into many a bind, but it has also gotten me many promotions! ;) To admit your faults to your boss...might be considered suicide, but it builds trust. Same goes for every relationship.

    The reason it's lonely is because it too often hides away. I like the way you shown what honesty is about in this write. Take care, Richard
