Seeps As If Squeezed - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Difficult it is to keep defended,
Generations of sins committed.
When an integrity diminishes...
With a steady application of deceit.
Increasing as it does,
An exposure for all to see.
Without the benefit of relief.

How is it that anyone...
Can maintain with a sustaining of beliefs?
When evidence provided seeps as if squeezed.
And is as obvious as the falling,
Of Auntumn leaves from barren trees.
As stark branches left bare,
Reveal such a nakedness that seems to stare.
