BURY THE TRUTH




In the twinkle of an eye
The story changed
The story I loved to tell
The story everyone loved to hear
A storybook filled with pretty pictures
A story so perfect
A story so rare
Envied by all
In the twinkle of an eye
It all changed
You didnt wait for me to say goodbye
You destroyed my pretty fairytale
You revealed a different side of the story
I loved this story!
Dont you get it!
It was perfect!
How dare you ruin it for me!
Yes, I believe you
You saw it all happen
I was too little to remember
Too little to know the version you speak of
Yes, I believe your version
It holds facts
It sounds so much like the truth
But I dont like that version
It makes me cry
How dare you ruin it for me!
I like my version better!
Keep your facts!
Bury the truth!
Ive heard your story!
But I dont want it!
Keep it to yourself!
Tell it to your children!
I like my story better
Its beautiful and perfect
Ill rather have a smile each time I tell it
Than cry each time I tell it
So, be gone!
Keep your truth
Ill tell my story



 “Denial is the refusal to accept reality or fact, acting as if a painful event, thought or feeling did not exist. It is considered one of the most primitive of the defense mechanisms because it is characteristic of early childhood development. Many people use denial in their everyday lives to avoid dealing with painful feelings or areas of their life they don’t wish to admit.”
