Beliefs Strong Enough - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Not one has ever done anything controversial.
Or knew what it was like,
To have their lives jeopardized by lies.
Not one had beliefs strong enough,
To sacrifice what they felt was right.
Or approached life with devoted insight.
These folks struggle with their own inner fears.
Not one has ever spoken against injustices.
Or sought to fight with indentities understood.
They were too busy,
Inflicting themselves with defeating beatings.
They are satisfied being,
Spineless creatures leeching!
And ruining reputations,
Of those degraded and unafraid to speak.
So routine today are their meaningless ways.
With a conditioning,
That remains to stay!
Unaccustomed they are,
With anyone expressing guts outspoken.
Those who address a gall with balls!
And caring less who may profess to squeeze them.
