Lawrence S. Pertillar (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)
Tests To Teach Those Reaching For Light
Does not do a thing to lift,
Anyone out of this intentional darkness.
With insecure criticisms,
Of those feeling a deliverance
To have all see them as other than misfit!
It only confirms,
A shallowed ignorance...
Kept medicated on illusions,
That a way of life isolated...
But by whom?
Rots those who die from inside.
With mindsets that feed their own genocide!
Although their acts to produce perfection...
Keeps them divinely blind!
It is 'they' and not God who rules,
And keeps them lost...and yet, alive!
As tests to teach those reaching for light.
