I Am The Truth

Ehsan Sehgal

I am not a person to hurt
Someone, friend or stranger
I see everyone
As a human
Without discriminating
In any shape
In any way
I take all pains
On my shoulders
On my body
I always speak the truth
It is my life
It is my death
I had been hanging
I shall be hanging
Every time
I am the truth
I know it since
Creation of the universe
It is my destiny
Decided by the liars,
But my real place is the heaven
Where exists
Only truth and justice.
