When They Recover
Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar
For those who have chosen,
To isolate themselves,
With a rush to abandon others not like them.
And awaken one day,
With hopes an empathy they can depend...
When a living in isolation,
Has not for them proven beneficial.
With realities staring them in the face...
They seek an existence less superficial.
With those who they now,
Feel they most identify.
They will discover when they recover,
It is a long walk back...
To a town without pity.
