Investing Concern

Lawrence S. Pertillar 2947 (Connecticut)



Learning to invest concern for others.
Takes that lesson time to recognize,
The benefits from it to earn.

And when the act of that,
Becomes as natural as breathing?
Much like common sense to have.
Gone to notice is one's own selfishness.
To recognize the many who believe,
They were born to live thoughtlessly.

With a blaming to claim it heard to hear,
About those they had taken for granted...
Seem to no longer care or be aware,
About the needs of others.

Others,
Who had been there for them.

But now have made themselves,
Unavailable.
For reasons that time to find,
Has become unimportant to explain!
