so now, you want to write?
and you want my advice
I have but only one …
tell the truth.
tell your truth
tell it so boldly, the angels will cry
pour out your heart until it runs dry
pour out your soul until it dies.
let your truth shine
and compete with the sun
no matter how ugly or offensive
it’s yours and yours forever.
tell your story to all who will listen
focus on the tragic parts
talk about your addictions
and the dead dreams you’ve buried.
you might think no one is listening
or that your truth doesn’t matter
but when you write them down
at least they’ll matter one person: you
Your truth shall set you free …
