The Truth - Poem by Charlotte Ballard

I will tell myself the truth
Even if those around me
Deny it.

I will tell myself the truth
Even if a friendship's
Lost by it.

I will seek the truth
Even if it tells me
Something terrible
With it.

I will speak the truth
Even if I'm no longer
Invited in.

At the end, The all I have
Is the truth.
