This...Can Be Believed - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

THIS...
May one day,
Click in the minds of those with a dawning.
With an understanding of humanity that sinks in!
But there are very few who have been belittled,
To then be discredited for their deeds and efforts...
Who sit by their telephones anticipating calls.
Or...
Are they sitting up all night hoping to receive invitations,
From anyone in their past...
Who had assassinated their characters.

THIS...
Is not an activity,
Of those who are aware of who took aim to defame them.

THIS...
Can be believed,
Is not a wish or a main objective...
That provides a motivation that propels anyone to succeed.

THIS...
Delusion,
Is only in the mindset of those who perceive themselves...
As being the center of the universe.
And whomever had led them to believe this,
Is equally crazed to eventually be exposed.
With an elimination of doubt as to who has fed on madness.
