It takes a lot of modesty to be honest.

I am telling you that you are important enough to know me.

I must kill the pride that says you only deserve my lies.

Honesty leaves me nude before you.

In my transparency

You can see right through me

To the pain and fears that I tried to keep hidden behind me.

It means I consider you more important than my ego,

Because honesty destroys the image we create for ourselves.

I will always be honest,

It allows me to be free of the weight of a false persona.
