Positive Escapes From Reality

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

We have come to live days,
Many have become afraid.
Of truth and its reality to face.

Run to be chased away,
Is the fear of it.

To perceive and believe,
Any appearance of truth to hear...
Or near it heard is offensive.
Negative and threatens,
A life to live they must and should...
Defend.

Delusions.
Denial.
And amusements entertaining,
Positive escapes from reality.
Are quick to retrieve weapons kept.
The moment truth,
Is suspected to upset...
A 'normalcy'.
An abnormal outlook viewed,
As a way of life to defend.
