What you may find acceptable,
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
With expectations from others...
May bring to you a degree...
Of psychological comfort.
And this may appease your limited,
Philosophy based upon outdated perceptions.
If you just stepped away from yourself,
With an examination that has depth...
Of a self reflection,
You 'may' still have some time left...
To regain some respect,
You 'believe' is owed and deserving.
There is nothing like awakening,
From one's overslept delusions.
