Opportunities Given To Correct Their Steps - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Tethering on the brink of obscurity,
Their implosion begins.
With a trimming down to size,
Of their fantasized whims.
No longer the prize...
Of lives lived on the back of lies.

There were numerous opportunities given,
To correct their steps.
Mistakes gone unconfessed...
Has led them to the beginning,
Of this looming abyss!
Their final test.

With the protesting of loud voices,
Proclaiming in persistence...
As a choice made to produce unrest.
Without the contemplating done,
Of the consequences welcomed...
By blinded visions,
Hidden by bleak and stark decisions.

There were numerous situations,
When Mother Nature came to intervened.
But a disconnection from their realities,
Has caused natural disasters unprevented...
To assist in an awakening,
From their foolish scheme of things.
Only to leave them in a firmer grasp,
That grips tightly onto foolish dreams.

There were numerous opportunities given,
To correct their steps.
Mistakes gone unconfessed...
Led to the beginning of this looming abyss!
Their final test.

And...
With the protesting done of loud voices,
Proclaiming in persistence what is mostly missed...
A listening to comprehend has escaped.
With no priority chosen or given credance by them.
But a demeaning with a speeding done...
Has come to enhance their own dismal end.
