Already Exposed To It - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

When one feels that time has come,
To confess...
With a getting of whatever it is off their chest,
It is best to reveal...
Everything.
Keep nothing concealed.
Who is the beneficiary when secrets are kept?
As lies to remember are often practiced to forget.

Even blemishes one perceives to be their flaws,
Can not be buried underneath denial forever.
Since truth is never absent from being what it is.
Or refrain from its existence by attempts to prevent it.

Only the ones feeling protected by delusions kept,
To keep...
Are stunned and become dumbfounded,
When something they've done to be found and mentioned...
Has been known without them making a sound to peep.

When one feels that time has come,
To confess...
With a getting of whatever it is off their chest,
It is best to reveal...
Everything.

Since those already exposed to it,
Do not make attempts to run away from its existence.
They too were once victims of beliefs that had deceived.
Until the magnificence of truth,
Came to remove them from the comfort of insecurities.
