A Poem about Honesty

 






The Best Policy is Honesty


In this I believe honestly
No matter what the situation
The best policy is honesty

There is no doing it modestly
When lying to one causes frustration
For in this I believe honestly

Above all when knowing this consciously
It's to self the harm done in relation
As the best policy is honesty

Even when truth to one may alarm
Honesty still best in helping one deal
Then to frustration one can disarm

For in truth one is given an appeal
Where lying shows self to be deceptive
Then it becomes hard to come back as real

Truth sometimes hard in being receptive
A lie can do more damage than good
Truth as afterthought can be perceptive

Best to tell the truth from start if one would
For In this I believe honestly
Being honest with one's self, one should
As the best policy is honesty

Thoughts: Telling lies is never good. Honesty is the best thing to do in any relationship; rather couples, as parents, as children, as siblings, as friends, and as co-workers. Some have a tendency to think a little white lie is okay and in some cases necessary. I used to think that same way. The problem is, we humans are habitual creatures, as such, in getting away with or thinking telling one white lie doesn't hurt, can and in most cases, turns into more lying. For instance: I have a co-worker that will tell a lie in a heart beat to keep from being honest in a mistake she made. She will pass the mistake she made off on someone else by completely lying that she had anything to do with it. And, what's so crazy is the GM knows how she is and most times knows she's lying. Now, she has a reputation of being the biggest liar and being a very deceptive person. No one can trust her and her lying has caused much conflict at the job. No one is perfect, and owning up to your mistakes in being honest about them is best in any situation. Just admit your mistake; it's not that hard and humbling, as well. Lying also promotes fakeness to one's self in not being real to one's self. "Oh...but it might hurt the other person if I tell the truth...they may not accept the truth now!" Well, if you told the truth to start with, then you wouldn't have to be worried about it later, because, most times, they are going to find out anyway. In addition, even if that person never talks to you again when coming forward about lying or being deceptive, at least you were honest with yourself and it becomes easier to move on knowing you told the truth. I'd rather look like a fool in being honest from the start, than to be pegged as a liar and a deceptive person later. It does hurt to tell the truth sometimes, but in the long run, honesty is the best policy. 

Note: There is one extra stanza in this poem as was necessary!

Sadly Informing

 Hi guys, I’m will be making many decision over the course of the next several months. Sadly I’ve made one decision that was a really hard decision for me to make. I’m letting my longtime  “rhymes” name to my blog go. I’ve used that name in one way or another now for several years. I have also used the “redemptive” name in different ways for a few years now. I’m letting both names go. You see, I’ve come to a place where I’m not writing much poetry. I’ve written close to 800 poem-including those unpublished and or tossed-over the course of the last six years; most of which was out of the need to express myself in poetry as that being the only way I could at the time. However, now my expressionable needs have changed. I will be focusing more on writing post, articles, novellas and or novels (maybe), and just plain promoting rhyming poetry on occasion; after all I still prefer rhyming poetry and did creat my own rhyming form. It wouldn’t make since for me to pull away from poetry altogeth

Godly Woman by Andile Andy (Really like this Poem)

Godly Women by Andile Andy A woman who walks in God's love. Reflecting the beauty of the father above. Who is not defeated by things most men find tough. A woman whose not just a pretty face But a woman of God's grace Beholding God's face A woman who lives knowing she's headed heaven in God's place. A woman of good character, not better competence. A woman who symbolizes the goodness of God by her excellence. A woman who pray for her house, and other residence. She walks with the Lord shouting, pleading's how me the way oh God'. I'm talking abhor a woman whose 'BAD'. Baptized and delivered. I'm talking about a woman whose 'MAD' Magnificent and devoted. I'm talking about the forever loved lovable leading ladies. Who help us see the best in our daddies. A woman whose blessed. And knows that can never be reversed. A woman who does not Drink, But raises the bar. A woman who prays to properly Think, before making decisions that will p
