Stuck In Childish Ways - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

We live in speeding different times.
And appearances of one's age,
Chronologically...
Can be deceiving.

And a maturity of mind,
Can no longer be defined by looks.
But by actions taken to admit and face,
So many today regardless of age...
Seek escapes to chase away,
Traces of being held accountable...
For that which they do.
To accuse others as a convenience.
And expect an empathy too!

Commitment to fraudulence,
Is as commom today as excuses made.
Very few own up to their misdeeds done.
With a preferring to lie and disguise to charade.

We live in speeding different times.
And appearances of one's age,
Chronologically...
Can be deceiving.

And mindsets still stuck in childish ways,
Are often displayed to portray an innocence.
With a running to others to convince those listening,
How someone intentionally picked on them to offend.

Commitment to fraudulence,
Is as commom today as excuses made.
Very few own up to their misdeeds done.
With a preferring to lie and disguise to charade,
No matter if one older masquerades an adult age.
