Likemindedness

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

So,
What are you going to do?
Keep running away...
In pursuit,
For the rest of your life?

Sniffing for clues and finding fault,
To assault everyone,
With street talk and negative thoughts.

Likemindedness is a wish you keep dissing.
Those on your path you cross and disrespect.
Yet you know you're not right...
When what is said
Provokes a fight you start and ignite.

You know you're not right...
When you're wrong and don't like it.
To you,
Conflicts excite.
Yet nothing appeals...
To bring to you peace and a restful night.

Let go of the design to find losers,
And addicting abusive lessons taught.
Where you go...
Confirmation of your pain,
Will be re-examined and be sought.

Give it your absence.
Leave behind what has been bought!
Your steps are recycled and tarried.
And in a trap is where you've been caught.

If your running should take flight,
You will fly with those of likemindedness.
Separate from those who backbite...
Leave the blood and the battle,
And soar above the storm.

So,
What are you going to do?
Keep running away...
In pursuit,
For the rest of your life?

Or carry your nightmares...
Secured and attached,
Yet despised!
