A Poem About Honesty


This poem talks about the importance of honesty. Life is often so much more enjoyable and guilty free when we are honest with others and even ourselves.



Sometimes the truth,
we are tempted to hide.
Due to our guilt,
or just simple pride.

An exaggeration,
may lead to a lie.
Those that affected,
may break down and cry.

When honesty,
we try to avoid.
are often destroyed.

Our intentions,
are not to distress.
The only solution,
is to genuinely confess.

If we continue these ways,
we shall never gain trust.
For healthy relationships,
it’s an absolute must.

When we have done wrong,
we should be honest and frank.
People will appreciate,
in the end they will thank.

I cannot stress enough how important it is for all of us to be honest with the people in our lives. Nobody appreciates being lied to. No matter how hard it may seem, telling the truth is always better than lying.

If we have done something wrong, we should look deep inside our hearts, and be honest with those that deserve the truth. These may be our parents, friends, or partners. Whoever they may be, and whatever the circumstance, the truth has the power to fix things. But keeping and feeding a lie, may only make things much worse.

Not being honest with someone, may also put a burden on our shoulders. We may think frequently about our dishonesty, which may lead to unnecessary stress. Once we gather the courage to rid our mind of this lie, we’ll feel a thousand times better, and relieved, almost instantly.

There are special (rare) situations when lack of honesty is acceptable in my eyes. For example, when my aunt had a fairly serious operation, we didn’t tell our 90 year old grandmother, because she would have stressed too much. We didn’t want to place this burden on grandma’s shoulder, especially since she’s gone through so much in her life. We just want her to be happy in her remaining years.

I’m not perfect myself. Personally, I need to remember the importance of being completely honest with the people who are the closest to me. I learned that by being honest with our loved ones, they appreciate it, and their reactions are usually not as bad as we may have played out in our minds.

At the end of the day, everyone deserves our honesty. Nobody wants to be lied to, not even us.

I hope today’s poem about honesty has reminded you of the importance of being honest.
