Honestly

Looking for excuses,
excuses for your lies.
Lies often reduces,
reduces all strong ties.

Ties bring our hearts closer,
closer every night.
Nights provide exposure,
exposure to pure light.

Light shines through your spirit,
spirit sparks the soul.
Soul without a limit,
limitless and whole.

Whole and fully complete,
complete true self brings love,
love sincerely released,
released from up above.

– Grace Y. Estevez – Reddy

  1. “Lies…reduces all strong ties”…

    Ties between great friends, lovers, boss and employee…

    The poetic mastery displayed in this poem is impressive. I sense it in the way repetitions occur in the poem.

    I look forward to a day when just by looking at a poem published elsewhere without title nor author, one can easily tell that Grace wrote this. I feel like she’s getting there.

    1. That’s so kind of you, Benjamin. I truly appreciate your sweet response. It means a lot to me. I can honestly tell you that I sense greatness for you. Thank you so muchπŸ’•

  2. How true this is! Indeed, honesty is the best policy. Look at this: “…complete true self brings love, love sincerely released, released from up above.” That is one of the best things I’ve read today. Marvelous, my dear friend. ❀
