Own It - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Own it to rid.
And not impress to dress up.
There is a difference between mistakes made,
And covered lies.
Those caught and deny,
Try their best in confessions...
To 'eventually' pry themselves,
From a past they had others accused...
To pick on them to victimize and abuse.

Own it to rid,
The moment a lie is told.
To hold onto an innocence,
With pretense as one's defense...
Further damages whatever is left,
To convince anyone to believe...
Someone who lies,
Has ever known integrity.

Own it to rid.
There is a difference between mistakes made,
And a hiding behind repeated lies.
Own it to rid and forgiveness is given.
But to hide and deny what has been done,
Brings a lifetime of suffering to that one.

Own it to rid.
Own it to rid.
Own it to rid from those told lies.
Own it to rid.
Own it to rid.
Own it to rid to live a life undisguised.

With truth in denial and minimized,
The one who lies becomes despised.
And a mind of a liar is not the one wise.

Own it to rid.
Own it to rid.
Own it to rid from those told lies.
Own it to rid.
Own it to rid.
Own it to rid to live a life undisguised.

With truth in denial and minimized,
The one who lies becomes despised.
And a mind of a liar is not the one wise.

Own it to rid...
From told lies.
Don't be afraid to be criticized.
Own it to rid.
Own it to rid.
Own it to rid to live a life undisguised.
Come out of hiding!
Let truth rule to be your guide.
Let truth rule to be your guide.
Own it to rid...
From told lies.
Let truth rule to be your guide.
Let truth rule.
Let truth rule.
Let truth rule and own it.
