THE TROUBLE WITH TRUTH
(2/28/17)

no one
wants to hear
the facts

that the majority
of their efforts
are fraught
with pretense

human contrivance

that they
view others

are viewed
by others

through a patina
of human prejudice
that allows few

very few

soulful
connections

that no matter
what they do

they will die
alone

as everyone
does

to be
remembered
quite differently
in retrospect

from the life
that they
lived

from the life
that they
intended

apart
from that

life is a
