The Truth Isn't Always Kind

Why dost thou turn thy face from me;
Is thine Guilt too much to bear?
Thy tears gush sans sincerity-
Yes, I know: Life isn't fair

No, thou mustn't tell me twice,
Nor must thee remind me thrice
God knows I know, ten times been told-
The Truth isn't always nice...

    Chan The truth shall set you free. Sometimes it is harsh but honesty is the best policy. And lies can lead to more trouble than its worth Nice job Hugs Thanks for the honest and wonderful comment on my Blinded By Rumors poem

    Thank you for your warm welcome. Your poem "The Truth Isn't Always Kind" is thought provoking; kindness is like beauty, it's in the eyes and ears of the beholder.

    No problem at all, Lara; I know what it's like to be the "new kid"; hope everyone is being friendly and helpful and showing you around. Obi-Wan Kenobi in "Star Wars" tells Luke that "truth" depends greatly on our own point of view, so I suppose we are all right in that respect. Thanks for the read and review :)

    So true! And, I know this all too well. Sometimes, I would rather hear a lie, than a truth that would upset me. Even though, I think we do know what the truth is in our hearts. You give the reader much too ponder on in this poem. Fantastic work!
