Failure To Face

Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

A failure to face,
Is not meant to stay pretty.
And perhaps the reason,
So many avoid...
Being honest with themselves.

To then be seen publicly,
Making foolish attempts...
To keep their deceptions,
Meant to excuse the obvious
For as long as they possibly can.
Before a truth exposed,
Becomes too unbearable to remain...
Deceived to leave,
Anything one says left to depict...
As suspicious and having,
Ulterior motives.
