Honest inquisition often leads to unanticipated discovery.

Deflection 

Today, questions go unanswered

responded to by way of an accusation.

A preposterous claim of a prejudice

I do not have nor have ever held.

A distraction, a pointing finger,

to an honest and partially innocent inquiry.

It was a deflection meant to detour

what became evident in the discussion.

I meant no harm.  I simply needed resolution.

For my mind can wander to many dark imaginings.

Therefore, to try to understand and know the truth,

I understand it is always better to just ask.

In lieu of an answer, I received a rebuttal.

In defense of what, I still don’t know.

A masterful maneuver, I must concede.

It was clever and appears to be quite effective.

For having dodged the original conversation,

we have wandered into an entirely different one.

And yet, I cannot help but wonder now,

if this was the original question, or answer, after all?

Desviación (Spanish Translation)

Sin título (por ahora)
Hoy en día, ir sin contestar preguntas
respondió que a través de una acusación.
¿Una afirmación ridícula de un prejuicio
No tienen, ni han tenido nunca.

Una distracción, un dedo acusador
para una investigación honesta e inocente parcialmente.
Fue una desviación para desviar
lo que se hizo evidente en la discusión.

Me no refería a ningún daño. Simplemente necesitaba resolución,
para mi mente puede vagar muchas imaginaciones oscuros.
Por lo tanto, para tratar de entender y conocer la verdad
Entiendo que siempre es mejor con nostros.

Por el contrario, he recibido una refutación.
¿En defensa de lo que, aún no sabes?
Una magistral maniobra, debo reconocer.
Era inteligente y parece ser muy efectiva.

Para haber esquivado la conversación original,
hemos andado en una totalmente diferente.
Y sin embargo, yo no puedo dejar de preguntarse ahora,
Si esta era la pregunta original, o la respuesta, después de todo.

Thanks for translating. So often we start a simple conversation, only to find we have offended. Some people have no sense of humor.
