Give Truth a Chance*
Give Truth a Chance
Same old same old, that’s what we hear them say
Same old miserable lie every day
So much we conceal behind this same old
For once let’s break the superfluous mold
Break the chains of your silence–speak your mind.
Voice your heart’s truth–please don’t keep it confined.
Let everyone know it’s not the same old
thing everyday–let the truth out, be bold.
Fearless we’ll be, we urge you do the same
Not be a victim of mind’s silly game
If it’s breaking you inside asunder
Tell your loved ones, let them piece you tender
Together all parts make one whole person
the same old thing mixing with the new sun
of truth shining through to make all things new
and erect new bridges that will stand true.

Thank you Manan for this birthday collaboration!
(So glad we snuck it in cloak-and -dagger like while I was at work.)
