A Pre-Requisite For Happiness - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

There may be evil.
Kept and fed to feed,
The addictions of unconsious people.
But being aware to know it observed,
Is more effective...
Than letting that evil stir the nerves.
To see what serving an evilness to choose,
Eventually does to those who lose.
With a defeating that is complete.
As more awaken from their deep sleep.
Done to do to recognize the difference,
Of eyes to brighten and heads and shoulders lift.
As truth to believe while deceptions leave.
Quickly to be removed from tortured minds.
Seeking to find quick remedies to detox from it.
Since an evilness to the taste,
Maybe at first be delicious but it permanently sickens.
Noticing this is a pre-requisite for happiness...
Peace 'and' delivered joy.
