Annoying Truth - Poem by Marvin Brato Sr

When a part of self
Expresses itself
As though preying
Yet not worth denying
For it is your very own
Destiny seems shown.

A dream at the start
Quite strongly part
Of your existence
And so persistence
In holding the breath
To seems stop death.

As the days unfold
Realities prove bold
Strike you in the face
When ghosts surface
Attack your conscience
And drink up patience.

Yet what can you do
Sins you have not let go
As it turn back to deal
With your life so real
Now is the right time
To surrender is divine.l
