I say to you,

long ago,

in the past,

a person was born,

named Truth, 

 not the first one to be called so,

certainly not the last,

I say to you.

 Their life was tasked,

to resurrect the living dead, 

grip with an awakening coil,

to show those,

whom couldn't grasp;

an idea.

Can you imagine what it must have been like,

if it had been you, 

to do the right thing,

to follow this mission of truth to the end;

all the way through.

We are lied at,

all our lives,

cheated, betrayed, ridiculed and swept aside,

bitten with teeth,

until we turn blue. 

So why should this person, Truth,

even bother, knowing the outcome.

Maybe they were just waiting,

for another one to say it differently;

to bite with a little more love,

to kill away the pain;

of truth.

Coil your teeth,

with a death kiss,

bring us back,

to life.

Boy, is this relevant to with our President spewing nothing but lies, and we're counting on him to tell us the truth--I'm ranting now--this is excellent, Doc!

Well thanks Mike, and yes I see your point here, all these lies and cruelty and lack of a good moral character, such a sad story this has been, thus far.
( laugh at myself for saying "thus far "...like I have faith that something good will happen lol, )

I can hear Amy Lee singing 'Bring me to life', in this, Doc. There's a big problem with a person called Truth for others might call the same person Lies.
Thought-provoking and very well-written.

Well you got a point there @ truth/lies..I guess it all boils down to what people want to believe.
Sometimes the truth is so difficult, the lie is easier to accept, though thats another topic...
I honestly just thought of the title first, thought it sounded cool, and tried to think at a way to write to about it.
Painful love, honesty, why to be that way when the world is so often not, and whats the motivation to be a better person..etc..
Thanks Hully :D
