How Is It Helpful?

By Victoria Lynn Hall

How is it helpful
    to tell the truth
    to expose your idols
    and draw back the curtain
    of your illusions?
 
How is it helpful
    to turn on the news
    and take comfort in lies
    that give you someone to blame
    for your confusion?
 
How is it helpful
    to those on the losing end
    if we do nothing
    but play by the rules
    that favor those who have already won?
 
How is it helpful
    if we just pretend
    as if no one is hurting
    just because we happen to be
    some of the luckier ones?
  
How is it helpful
to tell the truth?
 
How is it helpful
    that you seek to silence it
    by asking,
  
How is it helpful?
