Lost Echos - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Echos returning I do not send,
Or create their initiation...
I can not accept.
Lost echos falling on deaf ears...
Are not mine to hear.
Nor am I in the business,
Of casting foreign shadows.
My own I feel are blessed.
And I keep them protected.

I am accused of being biased.
And this must be true.
I am more comforted in the knowing,
My feelings are honest.
And my loyalty is devoted too!
But...
Echos returning I do not send,
Or create their initiation from the beginning...
I can not accept them or adopt their endings.
