Regardless Of The Obstacles To Overcome

It is not unusual to hear from those,
Climbing up from out of crevices...
Or from behind cemented walls,
To volunteer unsolicited comments...
About someone who has offended their insecurities.
Or doubted beliefs kept held but seeking validation.
Only to have it exposed in debate or heated argument,
A choice they have chosen to waste their valuable time...
In the midst of someone else's business.
With a making of attempts to define what's going on,
In that person's mind...
Only to give others an opportunity to discover,
Who does 'what' with a doing to move forward with a purpose...
Regardless of the obstacles to overcome and to be faced.
And 'who' it is that implements the opposition,
With a wish to disgrace one's credibility or perceived influence.
And there to get the attention to make that known,
With a voice increasingly speaking and loudly heard...
To rise above others who have not adopted to adapt or accept,
The popularity of hypocrisy.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
