Undetected - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

The only thing left mysteriously kept,
By those denying they hide from truth...
Is what part of it do they believe,
They perceive goes undetected?

And who can be fooled,
Once being introduced to truth...
Will not suspect they have been deceived,
With a blinding of charm and flattery received.

What else revealed to eyes wide open,
With those choosing to conceal...
An obviousness as leaves on Oak or Maple trees?

What else is 'real' or not,
To those wishing to keep accepted reality blocked?
And their delusions ripened and fresh,
Yet protected from those who object.

    I do not think that the truth is eternal. The thought once considered as the fact, is not true any more. Religiously the resurrection of people who had lived, (Jesus was not the only person resurrected) and we do not have any proof to prove this occurrence, still people believe for the sake of believing their religions. What you think as the facts in your part of the world, may not be agreeable to other parts of the world, though you, people, have proved the material benefits out of your way of living, so we can manipulate the truth to our own convenience and feel comfortable with our manipulative thoughts!
