Made To Be Equally Confused - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Appearances and what they mean,
As images to impress others conditioned...
To worship symbolic 'idols' to address,
As their purpose and reason to live...
With something comparable accomplished,
Is the only accepted success others believe...
That can be acknowledged by everyone.
Anything less is thought as waste and worthless.
Although the best gift anyone has they could ever get,
Is a life to live as they wish from a blessing given.
But those who self medicate can not perceive of this.
Since being able to have good health and live pain free,
With an ability to breathe, rest and sleep...
Isn't enough unless people are stressed out by deceit.
And sharing a collection of hypocrisies to whisper,
With others who have been made to be equally confused.
