Threatened By Ambiguity

Those not on the side,
Of correcting blight...
Find their way of life,
Threatened by ambiguity.

Uncertain are many,
Who believe their traditions...
Maintain a cemented fix to truths.

Uncertain they are,
How far a kept stubbornness...
Will keep facts off their tracks,
As a return to plastic satisfactions...
Seem never again to revisit to relive intact.

Those not on the side,
Of correcting blight...
Find their way of life,
Threatened by ambiguity.
With a weakening of pretentions.

And there is nothing on the horizon,
That validates a relief...
From fears that have increased.
As those foundations symbolized all their lives...
Begin falling to pieces as beliefs in them decrease.
