Poem about when honesty doesn't go your way.

Honesty

Take a deep breath, remember to breathe

No I don't want to hide it's time to let them see

Open my mouth let it fall like rain

Wash away the tears and all the pain

Pause for a reaction, pray they understand

Feel the weight of fear holding your hand

Anticipated knife wounds they plunge into your soul

But you can't back down don't let the pain show

A minute of conversation and the topic is dropped

You feel your heart sinking like a rock

Let out the air, alone you can breathe

Try to find a sense of calm and relief

Their footsteps retreat and your smile falls away

You'll just have to make them understand you another day.

Thanks for stopping by!
