Gone Undetected - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

If everyone who lies,
Had lied or intends to...
In a professed confession...
To address this done,
For the purposes to say...
Their dishonesty that had ruined,
The life of someone...
They had convinced many others,
That THEY were victimized...
By those who despised them!

And to 'now' with wishes,
Desire to cleanse themselves...
To admit what they did,
Deserves heartfelt forgiveness!

Guess what?
Those whose lives have been ruined,
By every liar that told one...
Very few people embroiled to feel,
YEARS of bitterness...
Would admit,
The first thing on their mind is a forgiveness.

There has been 'millions' of people,
Affected by this wickedness...
By those who have achieved success,
Hiding their lies at the expense of someone else.
With a lieing done at their very best.

Who has not been affected,
By those self righteous who have gone undetected?


And who has not been conditioned,
To lie as if it is NOT a tradition?
And who has not been affected,
By those self righteous who have gone undetected?

'I too have been victimized by lies!
Most of my life.

Oh yeah?
Well, pick a number.
Then stand in line to voice your complaint.
And when that is done...
Cool your heels with those over there,
Making attempts to forgive someone...
As IF they weren't aware.

    In America,
    Home of the gun,
    Someone who,
    That had done,
    Could pay
    With his life,
    I would say.
