Worth Honesty

A dance with the truth
Starts with yada yada yada
The story is too long
The details too elaborate
Cha-cha-cha with our honesty
And there is more yada yada yada
With no substance at all
Coordinated steps to avoid
This tango that we do
I lie to myself to hold you
You lie to me to have it all
And only when I look through
The excessive yada yada yada
Find respect for myself
And lift the collar of my shirt
Do I no longer accept
The little that you’re offering me
Because I’m worth the full deal
All in isn’t a gamble with me
