Ravished - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
By greed and a lack of discipline within.
By a purpose to select those to neglect,
Effectively to increase with no intention to end.
By refusing to self examine and reflect...
Upon those misdeeds done to others,
Now diseasing minds,
With a witnessed mental illness easier to find
Ravished by a selfishness that now addicts.
By divisions meant to instill racial conflicts.
By a self righteousness,
That can not respect religious beliefs.
Or those with different opinions,
Attempted to censor and/or restrict to cease.
Ravished are those who will never to themselves admit,
Their standards to value has become an epidemic.
'A society is defined by what it values.'
