Peter And The Wolf - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Let's face it,
We all make mistakes.
And somewhere,
Up or down the road of our travels...
An attention we should have paid,
Had been missed.
But the passing of judgement?
Well...
That's in our DNA.
Who hasn't done it?

However...
A suggestion given,
With a hint of advice ignored...
Continually and consistently,
From those experienced and looking at life...
As they live from the trenches on the frontlines,
Doesn't prepare one for an invasion of their realities.
You see...
There are many people trying to avoid others from playing,
Peter and the Wolf.

Although a viewing of it is highly recommended.
Those wolves have long left the forest.
