Call A Spade A Spade - Poem by Bernard F. Asuncion

Straight from the heart,
Speak truly and frankly;
However coarse it may be,
Say it right with sincerity.

A rose by any other name
Still, has sweet fragrance;
But it spells a big difference
Between tango and disco dance.

Look me in the eyes,
Talk about gold and silver;
They shall eventually fade,
But diamonds are forever.

Saying I love you to someone
Requires a solid conviction;
Though it may sound sweet,
It may also end up in destruction.

In the name of greatest love,
There's no room for lies made;
The truth will set us all free,
Let's call a spade a spade.
