Not As Profound As It Sounds - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Anyone believing they can go through life,
Remaining the same...
With a concept,
Stamped and sealed to be notorized...
That they have lives to live not to be affected.

They have paid no attention to nature.
Of which we all play a significant part.
And if seasons can come and go,
To be celebrated as we know them to be...
What makes a human being think,
Some but not all are not associated...
With this transition.

From that which is as it exists,
A return to be deposited...
Is in all of nature's holdings.
With a current or future witnessing of it.
And that business of one's being 'Down-To-Earth'...
Is not as profound as it sounds.
