The Truth (Rhyming Couplets)
Some people hate it when you tell them the truth, that's so
They get so fired up at you and in their merry go 'round go.
Some want to throw you off by twisting it all to get their own way
They refuse to hear anything from you that you might wish to say.
Like I hear and say even if it hurts the truth needs to be told
Well, prepare, many people may not like you anymore after the truth unfolds.
So take it or leave it with some people in this world you can't ever win
But in the end all that matters is that you keep true to yourself thru thick and thin.
Yeah, just do whats right and tell it as it is, remember that truth will set you free
Some may not conform to the truth but in the end thats not your problem, hope all agree.
