Truth Is a poem by famed author and poet, Ruth Desjardins


All living is growing; 

All loving is good; 

All freedom proceeds from the truth. 


All fears must be conquered; 

All pride must be earned; 

All virtue is lost without truth. 


All feelings are answers; 

All anger is pain; 

All values must lead us to truth; 


All tears are for healing; 

All errors for learning; 

For errors just postpone the truth. 


Each heart must be lonely; 

Each mind thinks alone– 

A searchlight to seek out the truth– 


Each soul longs for someone, 

But each one, alone, 

Must learn to stand up for the truth. 


All life is a challenge; 

All fear destroys dreams; 

Pretense will just camoflage truth; 


All strength comes from trying; 

All courage from hoping; 

All joy holds the beauty of truth.
