With A Tolerance To Ignore Despair - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

It has become too easy,
For some to accuse others...
To take the blame for their misdeeds.

Too easy today it is to say,
Someone else is the reason...
Why our lives lived do not please.

A climate that condones,
One not to 'own' what it is they do...
Continues to validate irresponsibility too.

And when this lack of accountability,
Confirms this with a tolerance to ignore despair...
Witnessed is mental illness increasing everywhere.

Eyes closed with wishes not to face the truth,
Only confirms an acceptance of delusion...
Those conditioned with this mindset would rather pursue.

What comes to a society historically fantasized?
Is not difficult to realize by the ones who made attempts to try,
To mention one's diet and a lack of discipline...
Has effectively created a quality of life,
All refuse to accept has long been on a downslide.

It has become too easy,
For some to accuse others...
To take the blame for their misdeeds.

Too easy today it is to say,
Someone else is the reason...
Why our lives lived do not please.

A climate that condones,
One not to 'own' what it is they do...
Continues to validate irresponsibility too.

And when this lack of accountability,
Confirms this with a tolerance to ignore despair...
Witnessed is mental illness increasing everywhere.
