Sewn Into A Pattern - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Caught up into limitations.
So many whine...
And find time to entertain it!
Living within closed in narrow minds,
And crying the blues like losers do!
Without one thought to taking a step,
In another direction.
Just for the hell or heaven of it.
Even a pause at an intersection of indecision...
Is acceptable and should be welcomed.
It is difficult to critique something unfamiliar!
Although it is done.
Leaving the ones who do it,
Expressing such vocal ignorance.
And helping to identify themselves...
As social misfits!
Out publicly dispensing their dysfunctions!
At least you will feel removed from being locked in!
Like them.
Sewn into a pattern with no wish to rip free!
And if you choose a direction you find not liked...
Find something about it you do!
Focus upon it and admire the difference.
Think of it as being stitched onto a patched quilt!

    This discourse does not often find social justice.. you have woven what could well be misfits well.. you have found the places where expression belongs... thanks for the share (Report)Reply
