The truth will set you free?
So if a ‘truth’ builds a cage of silence and pain,
if a ‘truth’ destroys kindness, and leaves you in chains,
is it still to be thought an unquestionable statement?
If a ‘truth’ makes you nothing but a toy to be used,
a thing on a shelf or a basement abused,
is it so that your loved ones should be happy and joyful?
If a ‘truth’ takes your voice, your will and yourself,
and just leaves a shell, hollow and fragile,
should it be left without query?
If a ‘truth’ is to stand should it not be enduring,
able to take question without violence,
should a ‘truth’ be able to stand others doubting?
If a ‘truth’ is so binding, so full of weapons and hurting,
perhaps the ‘truth’ is not a Truth worth standing.
