To be honest strikes a fear of terror through the heart

The subtle changes in the face so easy to detect





The polite cough, adjust, pretend

So many red flags screaming so loud

Your pride shrinking and hiding behind a wall of all the right things

A few utterances later a smile, a nod. Shoulders relax, eyes look around saying “Can they hear me?”

A touch of camaraderie as you both laugh

One more real than the other

Being true is so tough in this world filled with bluff.
