Concealed Unrevealed - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Truth for what it is,
To examine and scrutinize...
Has left a segment,
Of a population deluded and in denial...
As to what they do to themselves and others,
Should be excused with the truth...
Concealed unrevealed and left to hide.

Good intentions to mention,
Without producing them to realize...
Always offers those exits to escape,
To replace their irresponsibilities...
On the shoulders of the ones,
Accepting their actions in fear to face...
Their 'own' excuses to make them okay.

'All over the place people are losing their minds.'

~How can one lose what they never had to find? ~
