Dissembler - Poem by Kelly Kurt

As a hypocrite, I justify
Rationalize
Point fingers
Assess my failures lightly
Sparingly
Inaction, a choice
Yet somehow I sleep
Neither ignorant
Nor oblivious
True to form
Among the majority

Topic(s) of this poem: hypocrisy, life

    I still like to think, since I carry a walking stick, I would still strike a bully.... but perhaps not (come away Grampa)
    You do not leave us comfortable ... good construct

    It was intended to remove comfort. Especially for myself. Thanks, Wes

    No one likes to admit faults and flaws, but I haven't met a perfect human yet and I am not one!

    All we can do is admit it and try harder. Thanks, Akhtar

    Forming true aspect among the majority and justifying the thought both come in wise manner. Amazing sharing.10 (Report) Reply
