Insight - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Young and so naïve.
Born to grow up,
On urban desperate streets.
No renovation done,
Can remove
What these young ones
Are led to believe.

The only future they have
Is what an ignorance
That comes to them
Leaves.

Young and so naïve.
Adding to the blight...
With no insight that excites
And attempts to lift them,
Up and away from this mire...
Higher.

Suppressors who conspire,
To further deplete them of hope!
They are not taught to keep!
