No Attempt Made To Try - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Make it easy on yourself.
Don't be the one defying to deny...
Those known lies told,
By the ones who choose alibis...
To expose themselves believing they hide.

Continue to live a life with an integrity identified.
Since others will see this to be shown,
Just how futile it is to dispute those who 'fib',
With a consistency persisted.
And to eventually prove liars often use excuses.

One living a life refuting conflicts to dispute,
Is the one who often is heard to wonder 'why'...
They are put in positions to be offended.
And yet when questioned about this,
Another lie told slips from their lips.

Make it easy on yourself.
Don't be the one defying to deny...
Those known lies told,
By the ones who choose alibis...
To expose themselves believing they hide.

With an honesty lived and with it given,
Those who have committed to a life like this...
May find they are the ones,
Others hiding behind lies...
Discover offend them with no attempt made to try.
