Protect Yourself Before You Speak The Truth...


Don’t be scared to speak the truth,
When the voiceless are not in the mirth,
Life is too short to incubate the eggs of lies,
To hatch the lying bird to fly,
Millions of us here, voiceless, not dumb,
Fearful of speaking what is right,
We agree with what the powerful say,
We always clap our hands to their mischief.
Don’t be scared to speak the truth,
When you are protected with power and wealth,
No one can snatch your knowledge from your vault,
The world has chewed all the lies,
What we have is not at all useless.
