The Best Policy

picture adapted from devianart.com

There are times in life when we have to be completely honest with ourselves.
Yes, such self-confrontation would be worse than telling our friends our deepest secrets.
But those are the times when we realize how helpless we are
And for a second, we learn what true transparency is.
The best policy is still honesty
Not with others, but with ourselves first.

We can never fake who we truly are
We can never portray falsehood because we are already false
We can never bluff ourselves
That's the truth; God has made us that way

We are our worst enemy
Because we know our deepest sin and pain.
And the one who can torment us the most
Is ourselves.
