As A Myth To Use And Trick - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Those who perceive with held beliefs,
That a lie told to keep hidden...
Is not a lie until it has become revealed,
Are the same people who claim to have faith in God.
And God keeps their secrets concealed.
Since for them God only exists...
Not as an omnipresence in their lives,
But as a myth to use and trick to stay slick.
Like a going through of motions,
With a doing to do as if God permits it.

Unknown by those with a limited consciousness,
Once truth is shown there is no getting away from it.
And one who 'sees' receives clarity...
To leave those who deceive themselves,
Left offended when exposed to be the liars they are.
And liars who defend themselves,
Believe their deeds to be hidden!
From whom?
