Stuck In A Web Affected - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

A peace achieved,
Has to be a desire craved on a daily basis.
It is not a given to be received,
As if one is entitled.
And many perceive themselves,
Chosen to decide who is deserving.

No success comes without a sweating done,
By someone to get it.
And those paying the price are usually overlooked.

Only those wishing to benefit as they sit,
Are the ones who protest the doing of others...
Sticking out their necks to put their heads on the line.
To have them chopped off to disrespect everytime,
By those who find a taking advantage of what others do...
With a complaining done but nothing from them invested.

When nothing comes from those to invest,
A disrespecting fast manifests.
When nothing comes from those to invest,
Protesting begins until they get...
Others indebted in their mess.
Stuck in a web affected.

When nothing comes from those to invest,
Others indebted in their mess...
Stuck in a web affected.
