Subjective Objectivity - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Shallow.
Too hollow to perceive
One victimized by their deeds
Was not far beyond reach...
Of mental observation.
Shallow.
They who fed from prolonged contentment,
Resented lives led...
But refused to change!
Refused to see,
A bitterness contained stunted their stagnation!
Remaining in sustained defiance they stand.
With subjective objectivity...
They ensured they would be left behind!
Enduring the nothingness cultivated in their minds.
And willing to share their findings!
In caves where they dig in pursuit of light...
Ignoring the fading voices of rescue!
