Be True Honestly

What did you pull
From what they said?
The difference between
What you hear
And what was meant
Is it semantics
Or genuine disagreement?
Can the relationship survive
Mere opposing opinion?
When words are played
Communication blurred
To protect and avoid
Trust can become a weapon
I’m grateful for the forthright
Conversations that we have
A plea for honesty until…
The truth hurts
But lies and platitudes
Much more severe in the end
Be gentle
Be kind
But be true
