This Done Is Intended

I have never pretended something true was not.
Or the opposite of that is a hobby one does.
I've had a few too many close friends,
Die unexpectedly.
Not to mention the ones even closer than some,
Who God saw fit to take away as I witnessed this.

And I don't attribute my lack of patience,
With those who deliberately use their lips to lie.
But those who choose to do it habitually as if,
They have no other purpose to live but to dismiss truth...
I don't try to pretend I am not offended. I am!
Especially when it's obvious to me this done is intended.
