To Settle For A Withering
The rising of a higher consciousness,
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Has already begun.
Some in conflict opposing this...
Still drift between the shadows,
Of darkness and light that exists.
Dwelling on the past,
Of how things had been...
Leaves one on the path of destruction,
For them that will not end.
An acceptance of limitation,
Saddens a heart seeking more from life.
With a covering that smothers change,
That reduces one's blooming...
To settle for a withering caused by strife.
And no life is lived not to climb to mental heights.
