Guilty Of Denial


A rising of mental sickness witnessed,
And its affiliation with kept beliefs...
Can not be separated as if to determine,
Something unusual will be uncovered...
To qualify it as a defection in the mix.

A connected fed and tolerated has led,
To a mindset fixed on serving hypocrisy.
And dissecting to find causes,
For the increase of current wicked events...
Would make more sense,
If truth was the basis of any of it...
And foundation of investigations meant.

A rising of mental sickness witnessed,
And its affiliation with kept beliefs...
Can not be separated as if to determine,
Something unusual will be uncovered...
To qualify it as a defection in the mix.

Psychological exams administered to give,
Will not afford anyone relief...
To have some feel in the giving of them,
A freedom that releases 'someone' from fault...
Will provide a quick exit through which to vault.
With a bolting to escape to create more 'mistakes'.

What has been observed has been in place,
As a part of their lives lived...
To reflect an accepted existence.
And everyone is guilty,
Of denial, deception and lies that effectively addicts...
From birth and the moment eyes are open to focus.

A connected fed and tolerated has led,
To a mindset fixed on serving hypocrisy.
And dissecting to find causes,
For the increase of current events...
Would make more sense if truth was the basis,
And foundation of investigations admitted...
And not to omit.
