    “THE TRUTH HURTS”
    you say

    Yet what
    REALLY HURTS
    Is the pleasure you seem to get outta giving me this so-called truth

    YEAH
    The truth CAN HURT
    When it is applied like rubbing alcohol to a fresh scrape

    THE TRUTH
    As you believe it to be
    CAN
    Gently pull me outta the dirt that was meant to bury me

    THE TRUTH
    CAN
    Dust me clean and adorn me with the jewels and attire befitting this Queen; this King

    THE TRUTH
    CAN
    Massage my soul when I grow tired and weary, evoking a newer, better, stronger me

    A
    PEACEFUL ME
    That falls asleep in the arms of TRUTH

    Awakening to continue reign
    THE TRUTH

    I wrote this piece with regards to the rampant degradation that persons inflict on one another nowadays. Judging without compassion nor understanding. Seemingly very satisfied with bringing another down and hoping for their downfall. This piece advocates LOVE = TRUTH.
