The Impact Of Status - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
The impact of a losing of status had,
Leaves many awakening from nightmares...
In cold sweats.
The economy is a less threat.
Than a disappearing dominance,
Most self deluded in their minds regret.
And the effect of division,
With racism on the rise...
Has left many believing,
Their privileged lives are being pushed aside.
And rather than having diversity to pride,
People of color are today despised...
Not only for their intelligence.
But also for their influence they have,
Around the World.
And this diminishes a status to fantasize,
A need to have those revisiting insecurities...
To defend and protect,
Perceptions of them being...
It is their mindset...
They have let to decay and rot.
All quality of life.
Visions of greatness.
And a dependency on others,
Leaving them alone.
To eventually self destruct.
With it a greatness to perceive,
Had been created by themselves.
Instead with immigrants.
And others to depict,
As leeches but not the teachers...
They wish documented history,
Would not often praise their deeds...
Placed in history.
But not have them mentioned at all.
To forget whose resources were pillaged.
And hidden to hoard to privitize.
To then lie about it.
As their created adventures of obtained status,
Written to begin but end with denials,
Of ever being unfaithful to truth.
