Delusional

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Sometimes the right thing said,
Could be the wrong thing done...
When sharing conversation with someone.
Many are just not ready,
To share depths of truth...
Or explore revelations hidden.

Declaring one's feelings,
Can be a task regretted.
Some are motivated by honesty.
Some are delusional and fear confrontation.
And yet we all pray for answers.
And when they come,
We run away in states of denial...
Putting someone on trial,
For presenting news we refuse to accept.
Since it is not flourished in fantasy!
And that bridge has always been available,
For escape and perhaps to burn.

Running away from truth,
Doesn't make it less potent!
It is always there...
When we are prepared to learn.
