“I appreciate the Contrast…”
Your truth is your truth.
My truth is my truth.
There’s always two sides to a story,
Two perceptions and experiences going into,
What truths we live.
Also our experiences may differ as well, for example;
‘Just because my experience of someone
Differs from yours doesn’t mean I made it up,
Just as your experience of the same person could be
Completely adverse, our truths are our truths.’
Just because our wording is different,
Meanings are different,
How it appears, how it is read,
How you feel about my truth,
Or vice versa.
Doesn’t mean we get to repaint another,
As to accommodate our personal beliefs,
Values, point of view.
Respect,unconditionally like love,
To each their own,
Agree to disagree, that is true, love..
We are equally allowed to follow our truth,
I will not censor my truth, as it means quite
Differently than what’s being speculated.
Your truth is yours,
My truth is mine,
No need to project blame, shame, concealed
In compliments, sugar coating dislike.
Don’t like something,
Don’t read it,
No need to react,
Or come at someone rudely,
All that shows, is your own issues.
I am responsible for my truth,
Not the way someone else takes it.
There’s no harm in cuss words,
Being in something that is not an attack,
Threat, it’s not harming someone,
Because my truth is colorful, passionate,
And true to my heart.
I am not here to live and conform to the expectations,
you have created for me to live up to.
Be spiteful or don’t be spiteful,
Always be Unconditionally you,
Without pointing out faults,
As to condition someone to comfort you,
Instead of you comforting yourself,
That every truth doesn’t have to be the same,
To be real, and you don’t have to like it,
Let others be themselves, anyway…
I don’t need your permission,
Or your negative and unwanted input,
As to conform me into your liking.
I love myself, I love my truth, I love my life,
Please, be that way towards your life too.
Let us live our way, the most beautiful way,
With our truth, shining the way.
-P.S. Blessings and Gratitude,
For reminding me to stand more solidly,
In my own fucking truth, not giving a shit,
About who doesn’t like it, and reminding me,
Not everyone will like it, but it's not for them
To like or live with, it’s only for me, as my truth,
Is my truth… Your truth is your truth!
