Truth Hurts

Saying
what you really
mean in this

normal
world where people
fabricate stories.

When
words are spoken
clearly to

reprimand,
to correct a lie
or to tell the

truth,
and some find
ways to justify,

to
make an excuse
or an alibi.

What
other words to
describe a place

full
of pride?
Nothing!

You
just have spoken
the truth and

sometimes
it really hurts.
It really does.
