Tell me the truth
Tell me the truth,
Do I belong?
Can I fit in?
Life is what you make it,
They say.
Tell me the truth
About the truth.
Is it just like the meaningless dreams,
Tell me the truth,
About all the people dying.
All the suffering,
Including the pain.
The truth is within.
If it is, why
Can't I see it,
So that I can care for it and cherish daily.
Tell me the truth.
