Denial

By: Helen Rosengren

Denial is a river
That flows through my veins
To my heart it delivers
A way to keep me sane

 

It just didn't happen
It just cannot be
That is the message
It brings home to me

 

Denial is a fence
Surrounding my soul
It is my only defense
To unbelieve what I am told

 

Block the pain from life
Try to set yourself free
Rid the suffering and strife
Trying to live inside me.

"It's hard to accept the truth when the lies were exactly what you wanted to hear." ~ Unknown

 

"A person who lives in denial will paint a picture of themselves as being the victim or innocent in all aspects.

They will be offended by the truth. But what is done in the dark, will come to light.

Time has a way of showing people's true colors." ~ Unknown
