HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY:

 

They say that silence is golden

It is better to say nothing at all

Well, that is difficult to do face to face

When asked a direct question

People can read you answer in your face

In the tone of your voice

There is no point in omission

Omission is still lying

So do you lie to them to keep the peace?

Perhaps in the past this was the pattern

When divorce was unknown

But to keep the truth hidden

And to pretend that everything is okay

Eats at the soul

To pretend to love when you don’t

To pretend you like when you don’t

Is pointless

Honesty is the best policy.

Lying by omission is still lying.

Honesty.

Always.
