What benefit is there to doubt
except to live without
though sadly that just isn’t so
for lies are all we humans know,
but still we strive to act devout
delivering a worthy show.

The emptiness we can’t deny
despite our bravest try
becomes consuming if allowed
and often we are too damn proud
to realize we must rely
on help from those we’ve disavowed.

An armistice must be maintained,
agreeably restrained
developing our friends with care
avoiding those that fuel despair
so trust can be sustained
throughout the whole affair.
