Direct Correcting - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I hate to offend one's ignorance.
I know too well,
The damage this can cause.

I too have been a victim,
Of my own stubbornness.
With beliefs I once,
Knew it all.

I hate to offend one's ignorance.
I know too well,
The damage this can cause.

To obtain experience,
And gain a knowledge that transcends...
Where an 'awareness' accepted,
Once had been.
Rarely opens all minds at the same time.

I too have been a victim,
Of my own stubbornness.
With beliefs I once,
Knew it all.
With a defense mechanism,
That stalled like a wall...
The coming in of a comprehension.

I hate to offend one's ignorance.
I know too well,
The damage this can cause.

But every now and then,
I can not just sit and pretend...
I am accepting of anyone's delivery to receive,
From them...
A blinding disrespect without my direct correcting.

    It is never a crime to speak out and make people aware of their ignorance, through our knowledge we become better. Thanks for your highlights. (Report) Reply
