Embrace the Truth: A Message of Honesty and Self

Discover the simplicity of truth and the beauty of being yourself in this inspirational poem.

Lie to me. Tell me
what you think
I need to hear.
It’s all right.
Just remember:
truth is simple,
lies complicated.
I’ll be here when
you get tired of
making it so hard
to just be yourself.
