Your Mess

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

To those who 'get it'!
Congratulations.
To those who don't...
Congratulations!
The end result will still be the same.
Some will stack denials
Upon a growing pack that piles.
While others will reject
The familiar BS with common regret.
Leaving all to be affected with the usual disrespect!
And that's what I 'don't get'.
If what is happening is not accepted...
Why aren't more rejecting what is given,
For a preference they expect?
You can't blame 'that' on 'them' for your mess!
Or a neglect you find troubling to admit and confess!
Seeing the 'self'...is very difficult.
Seeing the 'self'...can be the best!
At least you know who to point the finger to...
When you blow a 'fuse' that induces your own stress!
