Such Vivid Clarity - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

The advantage of seeking the truth in situations,
Is the unpeeling of the many layers taken...
To conceal the presence of it.

And the detailing of deceit,
Prefabricated behind the scenes...
Appears remarkably authentic.

One on a path of this discovery,
Becomes difficult to reason with.
Since awesome and overwhelming,
Becomes such vivid clarity.

It is likened to the experience of a child,
Dazzled upon first visiting,
The Amusement Park Of Truths.

'Oh daddy, daddy?
THIS 'is' REALITY.
You didn't lie.
You didn't lie to me,
Daddy.'
