What About Our Future?
People refusing to do what it takes,
With necessary steps to move forward...
Even though for some the undertaking done,
May cause them to suffer...
Enduring heartbreak to go through changes made,
Are phases that are part of life.
Although proven to be impossible,
There are those with stubborn mindsets...
Who come to agree this need for them is not necessary.
As far as their future goes,
Together they stand with belief they have won a battle.
'We have successfully defeated,
Anyone believing changes to impose upon us...
Needing to take place will not happen,
Until 'we' decide when they are to be made.'
What about about our future? ~
'What about it?
We will deal with that when the time comes.'
Should we, at least, make preparations now?
Shouldn't we consider being pro-active,
Since time from us seems to be speeding away.~
'When those 'perceptions' of time speeding from us,
Become to us 'noticeable'...
We will deal with it to accept it when it happens.'
Lawrence S. Pertillar
