It Hurts To Live A Truth - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

It hurts to live a truth,
When a doing it many have done to refuse...
To see it for what it is.
Or prefer to make lieing as a choice to choose.
It hurts to live a truth,
To know so many live to delude.
And not care about who they deceive,
By charading to masquerade false beliefs.
It hurts to live a truth,
And witness how people abuse it too!
As they live throughout entire lifetimes,
Trying to make truth believers fools.
It hurts to live a truth,
And hear liars sell their lies to prove,
Betraying other people for them is okay.
Friend or foe they do it and walk away.
It hurts to live a truth,
And not know who will feel accused,
Of being in denial with the telling of lies.
Because when they lie it's seen in their eyes.
It hurts to live a truth,
And not be secluded with a life to pursue.
Or not feel entrapped or isolated,
By a living of a truth many disapprove.
It hurts to live a truth,
But...
What are truth livers going to do?
Use alibis and excuses too?
Like others who've committed mental suicide?
And dieing inside from the telling of lies.
It hurts,
To live with truth.
But only when outside where many liars cruise,
Seeking for prey to deceive.
And hoping for truth to defeat.
