We say we want honesty.
But only if its good honesty.
We get hurt feelings when someone honestly
doesn't like what we think is neat.
If honesty means voicing your dislike of their,
hair, clothes or wieght, that's not honesty it is
Honesty is telling someone you love, how you feel
about them,and letting them know what
We all know our down falls we don't need
someone to make a point of telling us.
HONESTY IS NOT SUPPOSE TO BE CRUEL.

This is so true Barb. To be completely honest all the time could be cruel and sometimes we need to say little white lies.

have you heard of free verse? It's the modern way of writing and doesn't use rhymes.

poems are supposed to be rhymed but not on all lines poems are supposed to have meaning and it should be interested and that is what I see this poem from my side of view so don't listen to those haters ba keep doin' yow thang.
