As The Sun Upon Them Sets - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
The younger generation,
May reflect unacceptable behavior.
And with language that disrespects,
Those composed with proper etiquette.
It is that younger generation,
Absent of discipline with expressed contempt...
For those who have chosen to distance themselves,
From the reality of their lives and lived environments.
And those who perceive reality,
From their isolated perspective and idealistic beliefs...
Is the reason why relentless youthful cries have died.
With repeatedly increasing pleas and screams for help,
Have quieted to cease to seek revenge.
As the younger generation take to urban streets,
To settle immediately what people ignoring them do not get.
And that is a truth that today's youth are unforgiving to express.
With crimes committed to address regardless of the senselessness.
A future invested in greed and selfishness,
Receives a return of a depositing of shallowness.
And so that's the way it goes as the Sun upon them sets.
