We'll be our own truth,

 .
You have written untruth about our family.
Maybe your eyes are troubled by your past.
Maybe your thoughts are troubled by evil you have heard.
Maybe your motives were honorable,
but your ears and heart were not alligned well.

I have to stand up against you
with the truth of our lives you're talking about.
No urge I feel to do so,
because you thought you were right,
your knowledge was just very limited,
and you were imprisoned
in your own frame of mind.

Unconditional care and compassion
is what Buddha teaches.

And so we'll smile,
and be ourselves.
We'll be our own truth,

Let's hope that speaks louder
than the reality you created for yourself.
