Paths Protected By Fences - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

No one can predict with certainty,
The outcome of events.
And even though some may be convinced,
To follow along paths protected by fences...
Will eventually free them from troubles,
No longer to face but eliminate.
And yet...
Those within those fences might find locked gates,
To prevent them from a promise made...
That the paths they walk on will provide escapes.
And through locked gates they witness to see,
Those they did not believe...
They knew gates to be locked permanently,
Walking around freely and appearing to be relieved...
That a tasting of truth no matter how bitter,
Left them to know deception for what it was.
With it discovered...
No path one takes to explore and adventure,
Should be fenced to prevent the journey to experience...
That which is unknown.
