The Physicality Of Things

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Living to identify and adjust,
To the physicality of things...
Loses one an opportunity to gain any wisdom,
From the spiritual side of life.

One into 'things' and the implied importance,
This emptiness brings...
Satisfies a perception,
That what one has equates one's worth.

Sad is the mind stuck on Earth like that.
Unconscious of all the traps that attract.
And imprisoned,
By a lack of time...
To adventure all that Mother Nature offers.

It is an unfortunate observation to witness this...
Those impressed by appearances and 'bling'...
Would have to be struck by lightening,
To appreciate the benefits the gift of life has to offer.

There are very few people,
Not limited in their minds...
Who can honestly say today,
They have no biases of any kind.

Very, very few can say that,
And keep an eye contact going on.
People are not yet that honest with themselves.
