Kept Unprotected - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Kept unprotected...
Were those values to now leave none.
And unprotected...
Was an innocence that had come,
But unprotected.
As so many are on the run,
To find and recover what was...
When times had been much loved,
And...
Kept protected.

Kept unprotected...
Are those hopes and wishes and dreams,
To be neglected...
As we impressed with the getting of things.
To disconnect...
From beliefs found disrespected.
While those grieve in regret...
To weep deep pity pools to own and keep.

Kept unprotected...
Were those values to now leave none.
And unprotected...
Was an innocence that had come,
To leave those weeping pity pools to keep.

Kept unprotected...
Are those hopes and wishes and dreams,
To be neglected...
As the owners of their pity keep to weep.
