Truth condemns wrongdoing.
People run from it out of fear,
believing that ignorance means bliss
But predators don’t shed merciful tears.
The horizons of ignorance are narrow,
Hence the naïve get taken advantage of.
Hate can’t sing “His eye is on the sparrow.”
This world is not characterized by love.
Ignorance often gets people killed.
Knowing can cause worry,
but knowledge in itself is not fatal.
It’s vital to know the truth
in this world of falsehood and fables.
Make it a point to get that AIDS test.
Knowing the results
will enable you to be proactive
and get the jump on things
to accomplish some good.
Nothing positive can come
from reacting when it’s too late.
Go and see if your suspicion is right.
Find out if he's cheating or not.
Knowing will enable you to move on.
You deserve better since you’ve been faithful.
Why don’t you ask the woman out?
Don’t let opportunities pass you by.
You’re going to hate seeing her on somebody else’s arm.
Other fellows are going to be quick to step to her.
True, the news may hurt if it’s negative,
but you’ll be proud of yourself
for having the courage
to say what’s on your heart.
Sometimes one chance is all we get.
Certain moments come about
only once in a lifetime.
So seize the moment!
