For the first time ever
I told someone new the truth about myself
Unedited, raw, Gonzo
and the blatant honesty that came out of my lips
pleasantly surprised me,
as it didn’t occur to me until that moment
how hard it was for me to admit the truth —
which is why as much as I hate liars,
I can’t help but realize that all they are,
are cowards –
and it’s much harder to hate a coward,
than it is to hate a liar.
But last night I was brave,
Last night, I was brave.
