If something bad happens
because we tell the truth
It may be sooner than we wanted
it may make our suffering a little sharper
for a shorter period of time
It is still good.
(Being hurtful and disguising it as ‘being honest’ respectfully omitted from this theory.)
The past few weeks
I have watched some truly brave humans
Get shut down
For the truth.
If it still feels bad, I promise, it is not over.
