Lawrence S. Pertillar
Determined To Be Unqualified
A strength one has,
That is recognized and applied...
But assisted by a dragging of it,
Into darkened pits to avoid as it sits.
And this is allowed to be applauded,
As if this brings a benefit...
To those seeking amongst themselves,
Who next is deserving of this...
Only proving that a future stunted and dumped,
With this kind of invested lack of interest...
And an absence of consciousness doing this done,
Eventually will reflect the mindset of the people.
Some may awaken too late to erase their fate.
Believing their past actions had taught long lasting lessons,
To the younger ones to follow sorrows all their tomorrows.
And it does.
With a doing that crushes initiative and ambitions.
Leaving in the midst,
Unfortunate consequences all someday pay.
As those recovering from decades of ignorance,
Seek quick fixes by someone appointed to replace...
The last magician determined to be unqualified.
And driven away by an endorsing enforced,
That a hopelessness wished or something like it...
Stays to thrive and be kept alive for purposes to control.
With prayers for a unity to immune them from a doom.
