Previously Witnessed

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

One's abrupt change of racial biases kept,
Meant to inflict another's suffering to apply.
And with a doing done to impose disparities,
To cause sometimes premature death...
Unnecessary agonies and flowing tears wept.
Just to depict one of being able,
With a capability to insure...
Disadvantages observed and by others seen,
Ultimately appeases the one who demeans.

And with a doing done to deceive with a masking,
Of one's misdeeds a reversal of fortunes happens...
To often result in a return of one's own conflicts,
So surmountable they will never leave.
No matter if one decides to have a change of heart,
In a pleading heard to be victimized from the very start.
Yet...
Those who live a life like this on lies,
And tries to hide with a hope the past will be forgotten...
Eventually from their darkened corners,
A falling apart begins to occur to have the one emerging...
With a denying of wearing diversed disguises.
Worn and previously witnessed for all to see.
