Sits To Be Accepted - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

So difficult it is to understand an anguish,
When ambushed within one's zone of safety.
And that which threatens,
Comfortably sits near and goes ignored.

So difficult it is not to notice yet permit,
An innocence portrayed but mentally conflicted.
Although hints of it,
Are quickly dismissed as an unpreventable blemish.

It is amazing how appearances,
Can upset and threaten.
It is amazing how impressions made,
Are depicted on looks alone.

So difficult it is to understand an anguish,
When ambushed within one's zone of safety.
And that which threatens,
Comfortably sits near and goes ignored.

It is amazing how appearances,
Can upset and threaten.
And that which threatens,
Comfortably sits near and goes ignored.

It is amazing how impressions made,
Are depicted on looks alone.
And that which is condoned and permitted to exist,
Sits to be accepted although a time bomb ticks.
