Poli's corrections are correct, Crotalito. You can't say "It's truth" in English. You must say "It's the truth" or "It's true."

I should add that those are the translations of es verdad, especially when it stands alone. We often say, "That's the truth," too.

Remember, you can't always translate literally.
Recuerda que no siempre puedes traducir de forma literal.

Why, I need to say It's the truth or It's true, I don't understand it, Why do I need to be specific always in English?

It's truth no es específico. Ejemplo: It's truth that eventually will prevail.(Es la verdad que eventualmente prevalece.)
If you need to be more specific use: the truth.
Most of the time you will use the truth.
Truly

that's right. The sky is SO big, and I feel SO small, considering I'm short for my age. I'm only 4'10" but there are a few people shorter than me. My older brother is a few inches taller and he's REALLY short for his age.
I also feel so weak sometimes compared to other people, because I can't do something.
Oops, getting off topic
^^

For us, it sounds weird and we want to correct it.
