Light Years Beyond - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

People can not perceive,
Historically accepted and their known beliefs...
Thought to be implanted with steel,
And embedded deep within concrete...
Could begin to rumble to cause complete upheaval.
People can not perceive of this,
Even though evidence of this exists.
Scientists unknown are paid to keep secrets.

And stubborn stances taken in opposition...
To take preventative measures,
As if one is forced to taste bitter medicine...
Will leave behind many embracing mentalities,
Stuck with a limited awareness that dismisses...
A controlling done by a subconsciousness,
Already speeding to break away from boundaries.
Thought too conditioned and corralled,
To daydream or wander with wishes unpermitted.

People self-centered often purposely forget,
Either with selective memories...
Or a focus fixed within a determined mindset.
But just with the tilt of the head,
And eyes gazing upon bright twinkling stars...
Anyone can witness this Universe has its own agenda.
Distant and light years beyond anyone's priority list.
With a preference to remain committed.

We are among the countless stars,
And...
Not the center of the Universe reflected.

We are among the countless stars,
And...
Without debate,
We are a part of this creation.

We are among the countless stars,
And...
Not the center of the Universe reflected.
As perfection to project we are exceptions.
No!
Oh no!

We are among the countless stars,
And...
Not the center of the Universe reflected.

We are among the countless stars,
And...
Without debate,
We are a part of this creation.

We are among the countless stars,
And...
Not the center of the Universe reflected.
As perfection to project we are exceptions.
No!
Oh no!
No.

We are among the countless stars,
And...
No one is light years beyond.
No one is light years beyond...
This Earth we live and leech on.
Oh no!
No.
No.
No one is light years beyond...
Oh no!
No.
No.
