Monday Mantra (National Poetry Month Special Edition): The Truth Will Come Out

mantra is a sound, syllable, word, or group of words that is considered capable of "creating transformation".

Every Monday I will post a new thought, idea, or focus for the week. When you need a breather from life, when you need a little inspiration, or when you're about to jump over the conference table and strangle your co-worker, remember the mantra.

Monday Mantra: Always, always, always tell the truth
Linda May
In honor of National Poetry Month, all posts this month will be poetry related. Friday's will be normal, obviously, but Monday's will be slightly different. For this Monday Mantra special edition, truth is the topic at hand. 

Often, I think about how strange it is that we live in a day and age where lies are impossible to keep up (for long, anyway) yet people constantly decide to lie instead of facing the truth head on. Corporations, for example, drive me absolutely crazy in this regard. Think of all the actual, true life stories that have come to light: PPG and the chemicals they leaked, causing hundreds of people to becomes incredibly sick. Enron and their insanity, with their California power control and bizarre future value ideas that eventually led them to destruction. The NFL and their denial of the damage to their players brains. The list is so long that it's almost painful to think about. 

It boggles my mind that there are people leading these companies who are far more afraid of failure than of telling the truth- truth that could save lives. Where are the morals and ethics in big business? Where are the leaders with hearts and souls that guide them? When will they wake up and realize the truth will come out? The truth always comes out.

The Truth Will Come Out

The truth will come out-
The truth always comes out.
You can lie, you can cheat,
You can cause some to doubt,
You can reel in your secrets,
You can cover and shroud,
But the truth will come out-
The truth always comes out.
