Fixed Beliefs - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
So difficult it has to be,
For many to catch up...
From principles outdated.
And feeding on fast diets of all kinds.
To leave them with poisoned minds,
By a merriment cemented,
To a way of life...
Causing duress with fixed beliefs.
And in fear of reality...
Encroaching upon their precious 'standards'
To dismiss this has to be difficult.
To observe it as a witness,
Is a blessing disguised!
Revealed as eyes are opened.
Those feeling suppressed,
They had to.
Knowing life offered more than traps.
Beyond displays of isolated hatred...
And strategically studied.
To finally comprehend...
They are all related...
In blood and need.
