~2016~ (Manipulated Triumphs) - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Attitudes are switching swiftly,
From obsessions to possess...
'Things' to acquire,
For a more desireable purpose to get.

A life lived with clarity,
Without being indebted to it...
Comes to finally awaken,
Those with minds to find themselves...
Less stressed and depressed.

Attitudes are switching swiftly,
From obsessions to possess...
'Things' to acquire,
For a more desireable purpose to get.

A life lived with clarity,
Without being indebted to it...
Comes to finally awaken,
Those with minds to find themselves...
Less stressed and depressed.

Manipulated triumphs,
Thought to satisfy once done...
Has left too many grieving.
Mothers, fathers, daughters and their sons.

Manipulated triumphs,
Discovered to increase mental disease...
Has left an effect detected,
With needs wanted wished to end in 2016.

2016...
And manipulated triumphs to be still sought,
With a doing to demean...
Can not continue this destructive manifesting,
Between family, friends to perceive these divisions...
Cures to mend anything.

Lives relying on deceptions to live,
Has reduced from them a truth to accept...
Yet in 2016,
More regrets will be expressed.
With it known to have it shown,
Debts to pay for disrespecting others...
Leaves no peace or achieved happiness to get.
