Truth

truth

Why do you need to be right?
Why do I need to be right?
Why can’t we both just be?

Our truth of today
Is not our truth of yesterday,
Nor will it be our truth of tomorrow,
So why argue it so vehemently?

Look inside yourself.
Life changes us along the way.
We know this to be true if we face ourselves with honesty.
But sometimes it’s easier to perpetuate the lie.

Because, in facing the truth,
We need to look in the mirror
And say to ourselves
“I was wrong.”
