Reflection Of God's Best - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

What habits we bear,
In this humanness given.
A 'will' to do those things,
To bring ourselves despair.

What delusions we carry,
To perceive we are disconnected.
To judge and disrespect...
Someone else who has feelings,
We don't accept and neglect.

What rights do we have...
To eat and rest,
Under safe shelter.
While others go hungry to wander,
Without food in homelessness!

What habits we bear,
In this humanness given.
To think we are better...
To live with no regrets.

Heartless and selfish!
Believing what we do,
Is a reflection of God's best!
And yet we find ourselves denying...
Inside of us,
A hopelessness!
