Disguised As Too Painful To Face - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

When people wish to relive their failures,
To have them praised as victories...
What better days can they look forward to living?
And upon whose values delusioned,
Are these dreams to be realized?
If truth is despised,
And disguised as too painful to face...
Without it masqueraded.
