Familiarity From Them Suddenly Leaves - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Why do people panic,
When a familiarity from them...
Suddenly leaves their lives.
And they have nothing left,
But to focus on that which they've denied.
Like reality!
Without the kicking of those,
Who tried to present it!
And now they make no attempts,
To show themselves in public...
With warnings, suggestions or solutions.
It is almost as if...
Those who struggle with an ignorance,
Are now on their own to combat it!
And no one to blame they remain defenseless.
Since no one is there to sympathize or listen.
