Truth To Face Matters - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Pain inflicted to let sit.
To believe if ignored,
It will not spread to be felt...
As an epidemic to manifest and exist.
Throughout entire neighborhoods,
Of people allowing their own sickness.
With it perceived others should relieve them,
From ailments continuing...
They've permitted to deny from lies that don't end.
But the facts have proven them to be willing victims.

'These tragedies we've started,
Must come to a stop.
We've got to find solutions.
To end pretentions we've adapted to adopt.'

~Who are those BLACK LIVES MATTER people,
Protesting against now.~

Awakening to realize,
Their minds are in need...
Of long overdue help.'

From where will they get that? ~


~And when that's done,
Solutions come? ~

'Facts to face without truth in place,
Is difficult to resolve mental problems.
Or expect them to go away.
To portray dysfunctions as a normal function.
With that done to not self-exam,
The effects it leaves to feed and nourish evils.'
