Rebuilding Concern

Lawrence S. Pertillar 2947 (Connecticut)

Rebuilding concern.
And a consciousness,
Allowed to burn by doubt.
With thoughtless division toss about.
Followed with a mix of added,
Attitudes permitting racial conflicts.
Can and does,
Promote selfishness and mental tensions.
Claiming this all to blame on others.
Going through the same,
Accusations made to blame someone else.
For something done,
To do to themselves.
With us all in need to examine ourselves.
And begin to rebuild that concern,
Once to have had long before...
We began to walk away from our doors.
Just to find any reason to disrespect,
Any and everything created and made...
By our own footsteps to accept.
What and who we choose to abuse.
To believe okay to leave left as is!
A remedy to come to heal and cure,
What we have done with no concern.

God has provided to give us the tools.
Too many have ignored those tools,
Preferring to become fools instead!
But to whose convenience,
Does the performance of this benefits!?
