How Are You Still Left To Wonder? - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

How are you still left to wonder,
Why someone full of life and excitement...
Would choose to refuse to associate with stagnation?
And mediocrity that is prioritized,
As a quality of life to achieve.

How are you still left to wonder,
Why an environment is only good enough...
To perform actions to leave alone to just get rest.
Since the climate eats its young,
And is observed to protest progress.

How are you still left to wonder,
Why those who choose to close their doors...
Do it it to keep themselves protected.
And not to again become infected,
By those overdosed with ego and superficiality!

How are you still left to wonder,
Why people weakened by not having identities...
Do not attract those who specifically look for that.
And only make appearances to limit,
Before they quickly leave.

How are you still left to wonder?
When the reality of what is missing,
Is deluded by those who themselves deceive.
How are you still left to wonder,
Why when even your own eyes are closed!
