Truth Liberates You

Ehsan Sehgal

Though, truth is difficult
To making a principle,
And life, however,
Truth is sweet
Truth is green
Truth purifies
Your heart, mind
And soul
It makes you feel not guilt
It makes you feel not shame
It is the gift of God
Dedicated to beloved ones
It liberates you
From all the evil deeds
It gives you
Inner happiness
Peace and respect
It shows you
The way of the dignity
And the purpose
Of the human being
It is the God itself
