Decreasing In Comfort And Questioned - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Snatched early to protect a mind too fragile.
And determined by those misguided,
There is a purity that should remain unaffected...
If one's innocence is spared.

And even though good intentions are meant,
The disadvantage comes to the one...
Unprepared for the unpredictable events,
One has to face on a daily basis to mentally survive.

To become shielded,
Is no escape from that which can not be erased.
One shielded remains confused.
And is convinced truth must be avoided.

One shielded remains convinced...
A running away from any hints of truth is a benefit.

Unfortunate are those forever troubled.
Running away to shelter themselves,
In places decreasing in comfort and questioned.
