Restrictions To Accept - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Restrictions to accept,
Has an affect effective...
Upon those with mindsets,
Living within such limits.
To discover themselves,
Eventually getting upset...
By a definition of progress mentioned,
But not for those with that intent meant.

'Our steps are kept to remain recycled.
We wish to progress.
Yet those paths for us seem to be less.'

~Your expectations have not changed.
A progress made can not stay the same.
You must look forward and not look back,
How have you prepared yourselves...
For a doing of that? ~

'We were not told,
A staying prepared is a requirement...
Needed to always be there...
To face unexpected obstacles.'

~And what do you perceive the future to be?
An event to rehearse?
To select from suggested pre-requisites?
With a choosing to pick,
From those restrictions that have kept you...
Limited? ~
