Disregard The Real - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Reality is being faced!
Many are awakening...
And finding truth has been replaced.
But when told that this was coming...
A look of pain was traced.
It is difficult to give up,
A way of life based on luck.
Especially when the majority has been taught...
To disregard the real,
And worship that which is fake!
No matter how much of it has been made up.
Created for illusions...
It takes one a lifetime,
To figure out before giving up the chase!
And even this action provides no tax break.
