Honesty and Fear

They ask you to be honest, 
but is that is what they really want? 
When you speak honestly, 
does it always work out?
Should you be honest? 
Should you speak the truth?

You fear when you speak,
your heart races, will you hurt someone? 
Time and time again people ask you,
to be yourself.
Do they know what they are asking for?

I am far too honest
at the wrong times.
I am insecure and,
I never think highly of myself. 
I need constant reassurances and, 
Often feel guilty for the things I say and do.

You say be yourself and be honest.
But the fear is overwhelming. 

Success! You're on the list.
