Some Kind Of Welcomed Status - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

No one should feel threatened,
To serve a life sentenced...
Spent surrounded where people enjoy,
Mediocrity cemented in ignorance...
As if they are meant to seek this to employ.

I can understand why the young people,
Strike out and defy authority as they do!
Most adults are immature...
Without a presence of discipline that is endured.
In most urban centers this is what people choose,
As an approval of some kind of welcomed status.

Or a showing by example,
Those qualities of leadership expressed...
To impress their children.
Neglect is what these young folks expect.
With a quickness of their lives lived,
With no understanding the finalizing of death.
