The Truth (A Poem)

Prefer the truth hard
Don’t water it down
The filler for feelings
Can make the facts drown

Don’t swerve just to soften
I face it head on
There’s self-coping skills (if the)
Blow gets too strong

I’ll calm myself down if my
Heart’s overloaded
What I need from you is to
Not sugarcoat it

When reality’s harsh (I don’t)
Live in denial
Avoiding the problem is
Never my style

The truth may sting
Can hurt like hell
And still it’s much better than
Lies that we tell

I’ve found no fulfillment in
False fantasies
Pain can be present, but
Truth makes us free
