Poem: The Truth Will Set You Free

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

poem about how hiding behind lies only hurts oneself. If one confesses with complete honesty, not leaving any details out, he can redeem himself. Tell it like it is & break the chains. Set yourself free.

The Truth Will Set You Free

Hiding behind a web of lies

destroys you in the end,

they say the truth

can set you free.


Treat yourself with kindness,

confess with complete honesty

without omitting the substance

which drove you wild ,

for a partial truth

cannot throw off the shackles.


No matter how difficult

to utter the candor from your lips,

telling it like it is

can break the chains.
