Is It Too Late, Under-Rated Yet Magnified - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Is it too late, under-rated yet magnified,
To appreciate reality and rid alibis.
Is it too late to terminate a manifesting made,
In minds re-routed from a consciousness...
To keep them afraid,
With...
Fears fed only to accept,
Delusions to feast upon to believe.

Is it too late, under-rated yet magnified,
To appreciate reality and dismiss all the lies.
Is it too late to realize discrimination is used,
For the purpose to amuse those who abuse.
Is it too late for those with closed eyes,
To have them open...
The moment that the dawn arrives,
To recognize all the evil done.

Is it too late to recognize all the evil done...
The moment that the dawn arrives.
And the truth no longer can be denied...
By the people dedicated medicating on lies.
Is it too late to recognize all the evil done...
By the people dedicated medicating on lies.
Is it too late to recognize all the evil done...
By the people dedicated medicating on lies.

Under-rated to berate it,
Is a truth magnified.
And people medicated hate it.
That truth magnified.

It's under-rated to berate it...
The truth magnified.
With a wish to terminate it,
The truth magnified.

Upscale, downscale it doesn't matter who prevails,
It's under-rated to berate it...
The truth magnified.
With a wish to terminate it,
The truth magnified.
There's not too many appreciating,
A truth magnified.

Upscale, downscale it doesn't matter who prevails,
It's under-rated to berate it...
The truth magnified.
