Instead Of Being Derelict - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

We have come to offer.
Not equip to dissect.
Humanity is a blessing received.
Not to subject for reasons to reject.

A neglect respect reflects.
With a victimizing that affects,
All aspects of life.
To project with a focus,
Which way is right...
Does not feed everyone's appetite.
Nor makes a slumber done,
More fulfilling when someone...
Says they are able to do that better at night.

And 'who' are 'we' to come to offer?
An experiment.
A test.
With an insight given,
To honor and protect.

And the Creator of us all...
Is in a better position to correct.
IF we obey AND accept...
Instead of being derelict!
