the sharp, painful truth
brutal honesty unmasks your face
all kindness now lost

This post is inspired by the Daily Prompt: “Sweet Little Lies”, which reminded me of a sentiment, that it is better to be kind than to be right, and sometimes that means better to be kind than truthful. Being wise to me would mean, to know when the truth would do more harm, and to know when giving the truth is better, than a lie.
Have a great day!
