Find My Truth

Rating: 5.0

I saw the truth lying around
Looked again, it can't be found.

Where it went when and why
Sorry, it must've passed me by.

Suddenly I'm feeling broken
Others say I've misspoken.

I'm tired pretending it's okay
To see my truth slip away.

I ought to see what is true
So I'll know what to do.

But it doesn't work that way
Lies most often get more play.

When I ask, they prevaricate
Don't deserve this, not my fate.

Truth prevails over lies
People's goodness long survives.

Whoever took it, they obfuscate
Bring it back, it's not too late.

Find my truth it will always be
Lies trap us in, let's be free.

Today I saw the truth lying around
Thought it lost but now it's found.
