Theme: Dilemma

Frankness Dilemma

To be frank and outspoken is one thing.
But to be sweetly frank with a truthful ring
And sugar coating, quite another -
Like getting in hard water a lather.
Or someone trying an empty hall sing!
I often go through this dilemma,
And the solution remains an enigma.
When asked for an opinion
I tend to be frank and open
And branded with the “arrogant” stigma.

Comment An open and frank opinion may temporarily upset a right person but soon he or she will understand truth and admire it. As for the wrong person, you need not even care whether one likes or dislikes it.
