With Little Or No Awareness - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

With little or no awareness,
They elaborate on things.
From beliefs handed to them through gossip,
To something foolish done when they are parenting.
You can't really call them victims...
Since they are steadfastly ignorant.
Comprehending their own identities...
Is something missing and allow to stunt.
And witnessing this from a knowledge obtained,
Keeps impatient an observer's point of view!
Nothing one does to share with people like this...
Will ever be accepted,
Since intelligence is suspected,
And long has been rejected...
By those who perceive,
Thinking folks are enemies!
