Truth is…

The truth hurts.

Shedding light in all the dark places of the heart,

The truth exposes that which we wish to see covered.

Like peeling a band-aid off an ugly scar, the truth is gruesome.

However, to those who accept the truth,

It is a weapon of justice

And a pathway of peace.

Although the truth may hurt,

It works like medicine;

Cleansing the darkness with its blinding light,

The truth is… freedom.
