Truth is an exquisite word.
It is wise man's sharp sword.
It comes from the immortal,

To halt the immoral
life of the poor mortal.
It is chanted in choral.

Truth cannot be hidden
Inside a deep dark cloud.
It is sweet in Justice's mouth.

Truth is the secret to grow tall.
I must live for the truth.
It gives life to all.
