If Truth Within Them Does Not Reside
People who believe they can erase,
What they have come to face on a daily basis...
And not dissect to self exam their routines and rituals,
But expect their denials kept does not affect...
To reflect what they oppose and choose to neglect,
Are those seeking miracles to undo to themselves...
What they've done but can not seem to overcome.
And delusions to live with a wish to keep them alive,
Will not free them to know truth if truth within them...
Does not reside but from it they hide to chase lies.
