Hopelessly Truthless



Captivated and made convinced,
Fiction to depict has more credibility...
Than the existence of truth.
A truth...
Being reduced,
Effectively from all reality.

Leaving defenders of deception,
Hopelessly truthless.
Mentally abused and used.
Refusing to accept and believe,
Themselves to be enslaved...
By their own hypocrisies.

And yet,
Pledge to protect, honor and respect...
An imitation of life,
One that suppresses truth kept to keep...
Many fearful to confess openly,
To express...
What has become for them unacceptable!
And an act considered,
A betrayal of treason performed!
