Restricted From Possibilities - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Those with insecurities,
Longer have to admit them.
Their nightmares are making visits,
On every dream there is.
And restricted from possibilities,
By the ones afraid to welcome and adopt change.

And in these days,
Where physical change is all around.
With the Earth making them.
Some extremely profound!
There are those still in disbelief...
Yesterday is not returning,
No matter how stubborn...
In their heads they refuse tomorrow to come!

There is no need to insist these folks are ignorant,
Stupid or just plain dumb.
They've been convinced they are the reason,
All of life exists.
And from their lips,
Are heard comparisons that remain racist.
Stuck together like fools on a sinking ship.
