Lawrence S. Pertillar
Left To Ignore But Kept Fantasized
Will we ever come to realize with it recognized,
That existing hypocrisies...
Can not wish a greatness into place.
To be believed and/or achieved,
If a progressive society can not admit its faults.
Or can accept what is reflected,
By images of itself projected although rejects.
And done on a daily basis to witness its defects.
Beliefs to keep are good if understood,
If kept in practice to improve.
It takes an examination that dissects,
What is wanted to be wished...
Has to be corrected into existence.
With something of substance to encourage it.
Instead of pretense to convince no improvement is needed.
Left to ignore but kept fantasized has not provided truth,
To taste or a morsel of it fed to the masses upon which to feed.
Nor has the removal of reality proven to be beneficial...
To anyone capable of defining greatness but absorbing to know it,
Has yet been digested to value the meaning with it achieved.
