Self Assessment - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

A daily dose,
Of separating one's mind...
From truth to know it.
And the popularity of delusion.
With it continually done as if a habit.
Can keep this self assessment done,
A lonely process.
But the overall benefits from doing this,
Keeps one knowing decisively...
Who is and is not,
Threatened by truth.
Or who screams horrified,
Whenever the presence of truth...
A self assessment kept,
Keeps medications away.
And doctors who prescribe them,
Running out of 'patients'.
