The Untruth

NaPoWriMo Day 2

It starts…
barely noticeable,
singular in its count
such a small thing which goes unnoticed.

Lonely, it seeks companionship and protection
not realizing
it is safest in its lonely world
capable of life internal, left unexposed.

Its need for help is at first tolerable
but soon grows stronger
its need to reproduce overwhelming
as it seeks others similar to itself
many always stronger than one.

Its need to survive…
something known by all living things
requires larger numbers
each one defending the others
from any who would challenge
bringing its end.

This is truth… about a lie.
