Down To Earth - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

As expectations go...
Seem only to achieve,
A certain level of acceptance.

And to appease those with ambitions...
To be down to Earth without attempts,
To pollinate wishes and dreams...
Often considered out of reach and unobtainable.
May those who are believed to be out of touch...
By a seeking to break down walls of limitations,
One day be welcomed from their flights of 'fancy'...
In the sharing with others,
That the world is, indeed, round.
And not flat!
With those living in other places,
Experiencing the many cultures and races...
With an acknowledgement of that fact!

I witnessed this with my own eyes.'

And unbelievable as it may seem to them,
There are others also 'down to Earth'.
And apparently living to explore it!

I witnessed this with my own eyes.
Believe it.
It's true.'
