Prophesized

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

We are born to have it done,
To learn from lessons taught...
With them accepted to expect,
An improved quality of life.
And many grow wanting to sacrifice,
Comforts they like day and night...
Hoping benefits to themselves,
And to others come.

Yet some who are born to have it done,
To learn from lessons taught...
With them accepted to expect,
An improved quality of life...
Refuse to choose what it takes,
To devote time and discipline.
Or respect given.
As they make attempts to escape,
From mistakes they have made to face.

And although...
No one has rehearsed first,
From a script to follow...
What should or should not exist.
But prophesized from Biblical Scriptures,
Is a blueprint many claim to acknowledge.
Yet they are the same people,
Warned about conflicts before they start.
But seem unable to end them,
To seek victories to win and leave broken hearts.

But to 'whom' do people pray,
To claim a faith with them stays.
With it practiced to have the facts,
Of this to witness?
