Honesty both ways

Doctors often worry about upsetting patients by talking to them about the fact that they are dying; in fact, patients have often realised and are worrying and welcome the opportunity to talk about it. 

Honesty both ways 

(read it normally, then read one line at a time working back up)

Everything’s going to be okay
So don’t try to tell me that
I’m dying
Because right now
I’m living my life to the full
You cannot convince me
That time is getting short
I can see clearly
My future is all planned
