Orphaned By Thought Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar


Orphaned by thought.
And a process of intelligence,
That increases with observation.
And an understanding that comprehends,
The value of active listening...
With attention given specifically to it.

Orphaned by thought.
And isolated amongst those,
Who have chosen to waste their minds.
With the ease of time to whine and complain...
And feeling to express with any depth at all,
Would offend those who might find this strange.

Orphaned by thought.
And motivated with initiative,
To seek and reach...
Every opportunity presented.
And those in sight...
To identify them when the came.

Orphaned by thought.
But feeling blessed and not alone.
