Hidden Truths – by Ito

Here’s a poem, written by a friend that I’ve never met. We are a world apart, yet he’s an old friend whom I “met” on the world wide web. Amazing, isn’t it? How the internet can get you a friend of a lifetime. :)

Hidden Truths

why do people hide
why do they choose not to tell
why can’t they just say it

is it so hard
to tell someone
the truth,

blame cultures,
it’s part of the culture to
save face
that’s no excuse

why do people hide truths
why do they choose not to tell
why can’t they just say it

i can’t believe it’s that hard
just say it
say the truth

i will find it more honorable
to say
here is the truth,
rather than to save face.

why do people hide
why do they choose not to tell
why can’t they just say it

I will never know
but when you encounter me
do me a favor
don’t save face

by,
– ito

P.S.: Ros (if you’re reading this), you know that I always tell you the truth. :)
