Rolling and lying

There is a human expression,

Roll over.

As in “he just gave up and rolled over….”

So why do we, when we see the truth before us,


Can we not see it?

No, the dog does not want his belly rubbed now,

No, right now, she is no longer chill, nor super relaxed…

No! he is not so well socialized that

He can sleep,even in the middle of the hallway!

They simply


They have rolled over.


Your entreaties having fallen on deaf ears that claim they can hear…

And those of us listening, are left at a loss for words.

We too having rolled over.


I am sorry, please forgive me, I love you.

Thank you for not giving up on me.

Tomorrow let us both learn to stand up together, for each other and for You.
