Living in A State Of Denial: “Prosetry”

State Of Denial

By: Ranjeeta Nath Ghai

I accept that the truth hurts
But what hurts more
Is living in a state of denial.
Afraid of facing the truth.
Overwhelmed by our dysfunctional world
We constantly practice denial
Ignoring reality
Idealising the non-existent
Taking refuge in nostalgia
We refuse to let it go.
Choking on self-respect
I wonder why
We choose to hurt ourselves
By searching for continuous mirth?
Face it. Confront it. Let it go.
Free yourself from the sorrows
Follow your heart
But do listen to your mind for
It knows. For only the
Mind can treat the cancer
Of living in a state of denial
