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.
