Truth is a sharply bladed knife

That’s so shiny it reflects the horrors of life

Truth is a gun that you don’t fondle for fun

Cuz it shoots down every lie concocted under the sun

 

Truth is a fire that burns and cleanses

All the garbage and filth of all offenses

Truth is also a book

That so many conveniently overlook

 

Truth is when people won’t kiss up to you

Because you’re wrong and too blind to get the clue

Truth is when your life tastes like vinegar most of the time

And when you’re actually honest enough to act like nothing is fine

 

Truth is when living gives you cuts and bruises and you sweat and bleed

Because of someone else’s big ego and corporate or individual greed

While still remembering that God rewards the faithful in the end

Those who loved him and didn’t pretend
