Lawrence S. Pertillar (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)
In The Minds Of Those Awakening
Separate political affliations,
And a number of religious divisions...
Depicting and in conflict,
What for others is best to accept...
Has yet to be proven a remedy that reflects,
A people who claim they expect to unify...
All that they have done to reject...
Diversed opinions and those who make decisions...
Based upon their ethnic beliefs they have known to own.
Before outsiders decided 'their' standards created to value,
Will be inflicted to follow with a restricting to not allow...
That which had been in place and peacefully,
To have 'anyone' perceive...
A dismissing to ignore them is going to be easily achieved.
These are not the days,
Delusions can successfully compete with a truth appearing...
In the minds of those awakening with a cleared consciousness.
