Symptoms Of Leftover Ignorance Enjoyed


'Don't do it.
Throw them away.
Don't be tempted.
Let the taste and flavor of them just fade!
Don't...'

Many hesitate in an awaiting too long,
As they allow things to happen.
To believe an action can be quickly reversed.
With belief overnight a marinating done,
Can change effectively...
An adverse condition to them that comes.

Not so say those awakened,
With burdens that have aged on their backs to carry.
And other symptoms of leftover ignorance enjoyed...
That has come to manifest with a digesting,
Discovered to sit and overwhelmingly annoys.

Unconscious actions surround and attack,
Those of a negligence...
Who kept with a belief,
Others should be responsible and held accountable...
For their lack of facing facts!
And a refusing to use a common sense,
Is not a defense for excuses to continue to be accepted.

'Don't do it.
Throw them away.
Don't be tempted.
Let the taste and flavor of them just fade!
Don't...
Oh well.
You can't say you were not warned.'

Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
