Honesty Vs Lies

People say they want truth, yet they can’t give it.

People say they want honesty, yet they will never tell it.

They would rather lie to your face and make you believe everything is perfect than to crush what you thought was real.

Why are people so afraid to speak the truth? Are they afraid that it’ll bring a reality that is too much of a reality?

Fake people, fake photos, fake stories…that’s all I see today.

Give me some truth. Give me some substance.

How about the truth of what people are really going through on a daily basis? How about some real struggles on social media instead of making sure people think you’re living the perfect life? How about natural looks instead of the compilation of well known make up products all over your face as you pose seductively to get 100, 200, 300+ likes?

I want truth. I want honesty. I want realness.

Realness won’t lie. Realness will give me substance, it’ll tell me what’s right from wrong. It’ll direct me to a better me.

So why can’t we just see that lies only misguide each of us? It’s just a way of allowing fear of the unknown get to us?

Or are we stuck in this world, circling around lies after lies because we want to reach the highest level of perfection not knowing that we are reaching the highest level of division?

Between what’s real and what’s not. Between what we shouldn’t pursue and what we could pursue.

Honesty versus Lies.

You can keep hiding the truth. But I want realness, I want honesty.
