Intended For Humanity

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

That which has been made to believe...
And that which is a 'divine' perception given,
And received.
May conflict.
And restrictions are enforced.
To endorse a conformity.

What is intended for humanity...
Has been based upon interpretation.
Mostly by those who have chosen,
A direction to impose.
And which beliefs would be condoned.

The Earth we inhabit,
Has always been a sphere...
Allowing life to breed and leech upon it!

Before explorers discovered this fact,
This world had one time been considered flat.
Did earlier civilizations like the Eygptians know that?
And where did their knowledge come from?

Many thousands of years...
Prior to religious zealots decided to adopt fears,
To entice and develop separatism and division!
Decisions were made with 'supernatural' precision.
And yet...
Humanity continues a quest to comprehend it all,
Beyond our current 'fenced in' limitations!
With a certain 'breakthrough' that comes...
To enlighten and heighten our selective consciousness.

Note:
'Zealot' as interpretated by the Merriam Webster's
Collegiate Dictionary-Tenth Edition

Zealot: (1537) A member of a 'fanatical' sect arising
in Judea during the first century A.D. and militantly
opposing the Roman domination of Palestine.
