Conveniently Re-Interpreted - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
If the purpose of truth,
Was to have it accessed...
To have it shown as known,
At all times.
And kept expressed to address,
A quality of life...
Wanted and wished left protected,
Since many say the quality of life...
Is on the decline.
Why is truth today to speak it and face,
Less done to be accepted.
While so many seem to be running away,
With a preference to treat truth,
As if it was an inconvenience...
From other choices one has made,
For impressions to make and use deceptions...
To quickly replace truth to qualify expectations,
That validates receiving approval and acceptance.
Honesty and truth to speak...
Within listening distance and heard,
Is immediately assessed as an offense intended.
With words spoken not to comprehend,
But 'conveniently' re-interpreted.
'WHY do you purposely deceive others,
When it is so easy to be truthful?
Why do you do this? '
What is it that you fear? '
I'm not here to practice fear.
Deception, I'll have you know...
Just happens to be my muse.
I enjoy what I do!
Unlike some people,
Who lie and pretend...
They've been SAVED from their sins.~
