Crossroads - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

The diseasing of greed,
Has come to the crossroads.
And mentalities deceived,
Unconsciously or not...
Can not ignore,
A path brightened with light.
Exposing the blight,
Kept selfishness has caused.
But many will wish to explore,
Devastation and heartbreak more.

Distinctive and clear,
Is a direction free of conflict.
Some will choose to accept.
To leave behind all feelings of regret.
While others will decide to protect pretentions.
With a doing to expect,
Maintaining an opposition and stubbornness...
Will, in a kept darkness,
Sustain their false happiness.
Done with myths and repeated unkept promises.
