Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Anyone can choose to turn their backs away,
In a dismissing of truth.
Anyone can do this...
To perceive themselves protected.
And unaffected to disconnect.

Anyone who refuses to sit and listen,
Eventually and without a consciousness given...
Does not admit some kind of internal conflict.
And with a decision made continues to ignore it.
Until a time comes they can not bear their anguish.

Anyone left to grieve with a receiving of pain,
Have nothing to gain...
By declaring themselves victims.
With sinister ambitions to release their inhibitions,
To inflict upon those innocent...
An intent to end their own suffering.
