Some Things Just Can Not Be 'synonymed' - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

An improvement meant to remove,
A refocused attitude that includes reality...
Takes a confidence that is not wished.
It is only in the doing that success is achieved.
With a wanting that is desired.

Anyone can prove they can make excuses,
Done to do.
Since kept lies and soliciting to be deceived,
Has fed many people to believe...
Truth is to be avoided at all costs.

Yet...unfortunately in the doing of it,
The expense of denial...
Has been an expensive undertaking.
And leaving many people still negotiating to find a way,
How to payback on their addictions feasted upon to delude.
At the most minimal of installment fees.
Hating the thought of living lives unfantasized.
And doing this cold turkey can prove to be too traumatic.

'Do you like it on rye or whole wheat? '

What?

'The cold turkey? '

Some things just can not be 'synonymed' for folks.

'If you want it cinnamoned or not,
That's your choice.
But let me say this...
I have never heard of that combination before.'

LOOK!
I am not talking about cinnamon, rye, whole wheat...
OR turkey.

'Yep.
I understand.
Trust me.
I do.
But...
Keeping things like that to yourself isn't healthy.
You've got to let it go.'

If you only knew.
God?
Why?
Why ME?

'Looking towards the sky,
Only provides temporary relief.
Just let it go.
Be real.
God knows what's happening.
Trust me.'
