Too High Of An Expense To Pay - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Truth is beginning to occupy a bigger space.
In the heads that have relied too long on deception.
With it discovered that a reception of it to accept,
And welcome...
Is far more cost effective.
Than a paying to sustain and maintain,
A growing to spread...
The painful existence of ignorance.
Too high of an expense to pay for this it is.

Truth is beginning to occupy a bigger space.
In the heads that have relied too long on deception.
And expectations that there will be exceptions,
To a change that is amongst us taking place...
With a having some face while others make reservations,
Enjoying escapes as truth descends...
Around their pretentions with wishing truth for them,
Ends. And it does.
Truth for them ends kept beliefs to delude reality.
