More Sought Than Not - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Many never get what it is they should.
To then pretend they have it.
With it believed it can be bought.
But still without thoughts never to get.
What it is they should do done to think.
Or know what it means to do independently.
Without seeking approval.
More sought than not to appease.
And agree with others who don't get it either.
Yet argue amongst themselves,
About what they don't know to claim they do.
With others who do know to have gotten it,
Through experience and not pretense.
And with common sense that offend offends,
Those who don't get it to know this to have.
Or bought to buy if they could.
Since thoughts to keep to have earned,
Seldom come easily experienced to learn...
When and how to use them.
