With A Making Of Mistakes Made - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

There are just too many quick to defend,
Their offensive and intended actions and comments.
To then pretend an innocence with a pretentiousness,
Professed in confessions others should accept in retrospect.
And should have never been taken out of context to upset,
Anyone believing they have been selected to disrespect.

And grown 'children' protected by parents embarrassed,
Seem always to cherish their freedom of liberties...
With a doing as they please that affects the quality,
Of the lives of others with a making of mistakes made...
To expect a forgiveness for their lack of thoughtlessness,
That brings a benefit of making certain mindsets exceptions.
