Because Is A Pause Between Thoughts - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

'Because' is not a reason to give,
To remain the same.
With nothing held in the brain changed.

Because is a pause between thoughts,
And searching for sense to make.
But having none to appreciate the activity.

To convince a sense is there.
And excuses a reason to think is not rare.

Because attached to a nothingness,
Provides one a purpose...
Believed to validate an inactive mind.

And a thoughtless mind in times like these,
May offend those who believe they are considerate.
And if so...
Of what? Why? And how is that shown?
