Truth

Slapps you in the face

When you have been bruised purple

Slathering on a coat of smooth

 

Truth

Tells you a story

and leaves out the ending

from your youth

 

Truth

Gives you it’s worst

When you are already taken

ripping out the tooth

 

I don’t have any answers

But this is what I know

The truth is hard 

From those take it low
