Cost of the truth,
maybe hit in the mouth,
lose a tooth.
Whatever the cost,
it may not equal the loss.
A setback may occur,
others may not concur.

Truth hides,
facing up rides.
Who wants to face up,
it may be too hard to lace up?
Sometimes in surviving,
to ourselves we be jiving.
We'll jive on for years,
to keep from facing our fears.

To each their own,
I'm not picking no bone.
Facing up made me settle,
but my soul it did rattle,
at least I'm not out,
wandering with the cattle.

Where's the beef ?
