Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.
Buddha

Tell me I'm clever, Tell me I'm kind, Tell me I'm talented, Tell me I'm cute, Tell me I'm sensitive, Graceful and wise, Tell me I'm perfect - But tell me the truth.
Shel Silverstein

If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.
Mark Twain

Anyone who doesn't take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted in large ones either.
Albert Einstein

It's no wonder that truth is stranger than fiction. Fiction has to make sense.
Mark Twain

Your problem is how you are going to spend this one odd and precious life you have been issued. Whether you're going to spend it trying to look good and creating the illusion that you have power over people and circumstances, or whether you are going to taste it, enjoy it and find out the truth about who you are.
Anne Lamott

Every truth has two sides; it is as well to look at both, before we commit ourselves to either.
Aesop

Truth is everybody is going to hurt you: you just gotta find the ones worth suffering for.
Bob Marley

In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
Buddha

Freedom is another word

puppets and masters who are who who's in charge
what purpose what end who is small who is large

power relinquished power misused information false
for advantage repeated till reality lost

so many have none prosperity for few
no outlet for anger from frustration for you

protection domination at home and abroad
image degraded the recovery hard

value uneven quality askew
less good and abundance what to do

greed drives the ones that have much and want more
no heed for old saying watch what you wish for

microscopic life supports life above
without the lesser they undo what they wove

unbalance dissipates like water seeking it's level
hoarding too much leaves no room to revel

true balance and fairness to all rich and poor
is the way our plenitude will restore

the one in the mirror who can it be
what is the difference between you and me

hold up your hand look past it you "see"
through your fingers our body a vessel of thee

live true to the self that the inner mind knows
the one that sees others the same as it grows

we say "rest in peace" is that what peace is
at the end what is left are we really free

Now this are a lot of good quotes and then on top your poem to bring everything into perspective. I think I print today's quotes and hang them on my bulletin board for a while.
