Everyone Knows They Have Been Exposed
Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar
When conflicts arise,
To become the mainstay of life...
Not too many can avoid the presence of them.
Or pretend they have not become affected.
As if a dsease that could have been prevented,
Just to keep the expense and purpose...
Of finding a cure to ensure one day it comes.
But everyone knows,
They have been exposed to a fear that will not leave.
