Is It One's Diet That Hypnotizes? - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

'My doctor told me I had this.
And...
From what I've been told,
I am convinced...
I should do that which is recommended.'

When did it become difficult to distinguish,
Between that which one is told...
And that which one feels,
In opposition to what one should do...
To enhance a quicker healing?

I have shut down.
I had to.
With two steps back to look around.
To witness without a dismissing of this...
People with afflictions allowing their minds,
And bodies...
Being used as experiments.

Never before have I observed so many people,
Limping with canes.
Or slowly shuffling along,
As if a weight carried on their shoulders...
Caused them excruciating pain,
With wishes to have it remain.

Is the diet that hypnotizes?
Or is it one's selfishness that resides within?
Revealed and kept,
As if repayment for 'sins'?

'My doctor told me I had this.
And...
From what I've been told,
I am convinced...
I should do that which is recommended.'

Is this the mindset that has created this epidemic?
And if I refuse to be indoctrinated...
Will my healing achieved be perceived,
By those who accept designer diseases...
As one to isolate,
From their interpretation of life.
And how best to appreciate it.
