Truth is an outfit we like to appear
surrounding us firmly, to act like a spear
towards those who try to avoid it’s sharp edge,
to people who lie, cheat and steal, with an edge.
Nothing is known of grand truth, we are told,
and great things are said, that make all who hear bold,
and truth is a thing that can shed a great light
on all those out there, who are part of the fight.
There’s much that is written about truth, so dear
to all that have known it, to all those so clear
about words of truth, those of passion, and love,
truth, simply sublime, for the glory of God.
