Rejection, Denial And Deception - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

An acceptance,
That has a negative affect...
Reeking of a need to be corrected.
Is difficult to recognize,
In environments where people survive...
On rejection, denial and deception.
And most of them rely on suspicion,
To qualify and validate as if to appreciate...
The state of their mental condition.
With encouragement given by those in positions,
Hoping they remain that way to stay...
Accepting negativity as a way of life,
As a purpose served...
To keep them from the truth and the 'light'.
Which makes for some higher incomes.
And those dumbdowned left delighted and liked,
By those wishing them to pray...
For a more positive outlook on life.
But keeping it a wish to pray for.
Since it will never be too late.
When and if that day comes to ever happen,
To those with minds confined to limitations.
