Half of honesty

Half-truths.
The ones we tell ourselves
When we are not brave enough,
Weak enough to face the unedited,
Re-cropped, unfiltered version.
They are the ones you speak
With a knot in your stomach,
Heart,
Throat.
The ones that keep you
Stuck in the same place
For too long,
Making the same mistake
Over and over again,
(It is his fault, I am faultless –
Half-lie
If only I love him, he will change –
Absolute lie)
So be weak enough,
To be brave enough
To tell the
Whole
Truth
Honestly.
