Mimicking - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Life is not to be intellectualized...
By studying the lives of those considered wise!
They weren't afraid to pave their own way.
Regardless of who said what and criticized.
Stunted minds are the ones finding themselves...
Walking in the shadows with shallow understanding.
No one can lead another to wisdom.
No matter how discussions of the past...
Makes one safe
Following along a path and mimicking,
Someone else's achievements...
And documented tasks!
