Without A Word Heard To Be Spoken - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
When someone has been tested,
With each step taken to move forward...
From birth and most of their entire life,
To be judged.
That person becomes aware very early,
Who is or is not basing their opinions...
On the physicality and appearances of things.
To disregard one's efforts to place steps made.
And what each step taken to one taking them means.
To leave the depth of an unexpected thought process,
To become one's weapon to strengthen one's mind.
With an ability to perceive,
Without a word heard to be spoken.
Or a superficiality exchanged to go unknown.
