Where Is The Excellence

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Where is the excellence.
Owed with a showing of appreciation,
To our ancestors.
How much selfish greed will please,
A feeding of thoughtless feasting...
Endlessly,
To keep...
Minds manifesting ignorance.
And division to accept disrespect.

Where is the excellence projected.
Kept to share and made aware,
Between ourselves to inspire.
And support.
Where is the progress achieved?
Where is that desire to leave,
Our children motivated...
With belief,
That unity and collective initiative
Are pre-requisites to succeed.

But...
Where is the excellence.
Endeavored with unity to prove,
We are worthy to continue...
Those steps laid by our ancestors.
And...
What kind of future will be made,
For our children and 'theirs'...
If we leave them prepared,
To believe being irresponsible...
Is the only tool needed.
And used to represent a heritage,
Of consenting fools.
