Without Fail - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

The thing about truth,
Many may find to be frightening...
Is its ability to remain honest.
All the time and without fail.
And anyone unprepared for its appearance,
Can become easily startled...
By the way it can be used to defend against,
False faces, lies, alibis and deceptions.
And not wear a mask to perform these tasks.
Or apologize if it should offend.
One who knows truth for what it is,
May seem to be a magician to anyone deluded.

    Well abracadabra Lawrence! lol The inability or simple uncaring by so many to speak truth has become disheartening. A wonderful poem. (Report) Reply
