Truth, a forever lingering presence
Powerful molder of our character,
Critical in forming our personas
To be who we authentically are.
Who do we genuinely want to be?
How do we want to be perceived?
What character will personas have?
Truth at heart of what answers are.
Real person, or deceptive shroud,
Our own decision by how we act,
Veils of lies encompass some
Not living as who they really are.
Freedom only comes with truth,
Honest lives with no fears hiding,
Others confident in who we are
Giving their trust in what we do.
