The Many Who Have Slept

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

More naysayers of those yesterdays gone,
Are heard to be sighing about what's going on.
And doing it with wishes,
That the ones they were taught to disrespect...
Would forgive a doing to them once done.
To realize today they had not been the ones,
Pretending to disbelieve a negativity...
Had been, indeed, a fact.
Of an attraction that would eventually,
Attack an ignorance many chose to defend.
Now wanting after decades to pass,
To unify and connect to correct...
All that has been done to overcome.
With it to expect...
Those who have taken years to move forward,
Would neglect those steps made...
To return to awaken the many who have slept.

'What about us? '

~That's what we've been saying.
To those with minds and eyes closed in denial.
What about us,
Are you now prepared to accept and believe? ~
