The Importance Of Your Purpose - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Too energy absorbing it is,
To promote with a devoting...
Of one's cultural identity,
To be kept connected without dollars and cents.
Since many today would rather have their efforts,
Funded for the purpose to document...
What it is they feel they represent.
And if the money isn't there...
Few are left to care if their culture is spared.
Or if the existence of it becomes extinct.
Especially in atmospheres where pride and identity,
Is meaningless unless it impresses with bling.

'We need more of 'us' to be paid to represent ourselves.'

~And if the funding isn't there? ~

'Why should we care who it is we are? '

~So your pride, identity and kept identity,
Depends upon who it is you can leave impressed? ~

'Of course.'

~Then you will never know the importance of your purpose.
Or have your thoughts represent who you are.~

'Listen.
You give me some money...
And I'll show you where my thoughts are.'
And it will not be spent on anything philosophical.
It's about the bling.
Give me the bucks and to me that's everything.'
