Choosing To Escape From Safe Places

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

An absorbing self indulgence,
May had at one time found it difficult...
To contemplate on the brightest star,
With a wondering how far...
Its brilliance in the Universe was shown.
Or had it been discovered before to be known.

The times are increasingly changing and quick.
Preferences kept for those standards valued,
Have become less a fixed interest...
By those today wishing for a basic life to live.
With a forgetting of chasing those rainbows that sit,
In a ship that floats carrying an abundance of gold...
And personalized with a familiar name on it.

An absorbing self indulgence,
May had at one time found it difficult...
To contemplate on the brightest star,
With a wondering how far...
Its brilliance in the Universe was shown.
Or had it been discovered before to be known.
But minds today are choosing to escape from safe places.
