Looking With And Through - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Looking with and through,
Experienced eyes open wide to wisen...
Does not necessarily increase,
One's patience or tolerance...
With it to decrease to eventually eliminate,
A protective peace of mind to stay that way...
To accept a display of ongoing madness,
As a result of childhood dysfunctions.
Or unchecked yet defective birth defects.

What looking with and through,
Experienced eyes open wide to wisen does...
Is to give one more choices to avoid,
Which faces still etched with traces of stress...
Attempting to live lifes,
Totally controlled by impressions to make.
And finding lies to create on a daily basis,
Easier to access to afford escapes.
Than living a truth in fear to do it would offend.
