You can choose to ignore it.
You can choose not to respond to it.
You can choose not to learn from it.
You can choose not to live by it.
But denying truth will never rid you of its existence.
Truth is always present.
Never goes away.
We each face a choice.
We may choose to live our lives based upon complete truth -
no matter how painful, shameful or lonely the journey may be;
whilst empowering truth
to resolve and dissolve into healing and hope.
Or we may choose to ignore truth
or segments thereof,
as we eventually believe and embody untruths,
evolving into masters of lying.
When forced to make that choice in my life,
the truth is what set me free.
