Tell The Truth

 

They say the truth shall set you free

Then why does our country continue to lie to you and me

 

It's not just the govenors,mayors,and senators,but it's the president too

They're just making it harder on me and you

 

They say they're gonna do this and do that to help us achieve

What do we do;we foolishly believe

 

They get into office because they earned our trust

Next thing you know they raise taxes,gas,and health care on us

 

To me being truthful is being true to yourself

Not only to yourself,but also to everyone else

 

If you don't know something say you don't know

Don't stand there and put on a show

 

People just want to feel safe and secure

There's only so much pain and suffering one can endure

 

Truth and honesty is all we ask

Is that such a hard task
