Undermining Themselves - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
To have done this successfully.
With envy and jealousy used as weapons...
And contradicted hypocrisies,
Has left their minds and communities eroded.
Although it is celebrated with kept belief,
A unified togetherness...
Can and will restored,
More of those missed opportunities.
Expectations are higher,
Than appreciation shown for known abilities...
No one accepts to respect they have.
'They don't expose to show their motivation.
Nor is initiative with desire is noticed.
And gone is their intention to listen with discipline.
How is it we can make steps to progress,
If no one is willing to devote time and sweat.
Sacrificing invested almost guarantees success.'
~I remember those days when they made such steps.~
'What happened? '
~I remember also your complaints.
And the beginning of your campaign.~
'MY campaign? '
You were the one to take the steps,
To claim anyone attempting to do their best...
Were trying to be better than the rest of us.~
That was so many years ago.'
The affect it has left on your children.
And 'their' children to have grown...
Has initiated to create,
What you now don't wish to own.~
Times have changed.'
~Times are always changing.
Your undermining those who have made changes,
Still remains the same.
It's not difficult to find,
Those who have bought to feed on your thoughts.~
