Truth Branded

If I tell you the truth,
Will you label me
Some sort of hater?

If I show you God’s Word,
That supports what I say,
Am I hood-winked?

If I say nothing at all,
You live and so shall I,
Will I then become a gossip?

Do you want the truth?
Will you hear the truth?
Am I then a truth bearer?

Oh, it’s easier to blame
Less stressful than change,
Truth will find a way to be spoken.

Call me what you will,
Label me all you need,
You need to hear the truth.

Let me be wise enough to know,
How to speak it in love,
Uncaring about the labels.
