confused emphasis

collected moments of wrong-doing
overshadow the path of so many righteous
nobody can say they are absolutely perfect
from this moment on we must
use our knowledge to perservere through
some of the worst times of our modern age
even if it means finding out a hero is false
deny instead of admit like
eating mindlessly when already full or
making someone else angry because you are angry too
performing like a trained animal is used to
having to retrain yourself is
as difficult as chess to some leaders
stay away from those with compromised beliefs
if you cannot get away then you
should have left long ago
