      Honesty
      As a kid it was drummed into me
      Honesty is the best policy
      I’m not sure when that started to slide
      As I had more and more things to hide
      One or two to start
      The truth might really break mums heart
      I told myself those lies were white
      Surely that made it right?
      But one or two lead to more
      And those lies made life raw
      Not so white now and I couldn’t kid
      Myself about the things I hid
      The money lost, the time as well
      As my life went all to hell
      Now the lies had become the norm
      If I said I was reading it would be reading form
      Finally there came a time
      Family didn’t believe a word of mine
      If I said the sky was blue
      They would look to see if it was true
      But the one person to whom I lied the most
      Was yours truly, it’s not a boast
      Finally it got so tough
      I knew that I had had enough
      Gambling could not be the answer
      That’s what turned me into a chancer
      I ventured into a meeting
      “You are welcome” was the honest greeting
      I told my story and oh how I cried
      Remembering the times I’d lied
      Then I heard there was an answer
      I no longer had to be that chancer
      I could stop gambling and recover
      Needn’t lie to another
      If I told the truth I didn’t need
      To try and hide things, I was freed
      In fact I leant a lie might cause
      My recovery to take a pause
      I could show by my actions
      That my truth was whole, not fractions
      My family learned that they could trust
      And to keep that up I really must
      Return to what I always knew
      That being honest is the thing to do.
      Now as I stay in recovery
      Honesty really is that best policy!
