Poems of Lawrence S. Pertillar

Kids Don't Know This

Kids don't know this to notice it.
Kids do not notice to know this.

Commitment has never been an option given,
Not to those devoted to whatever it is...
They seek with a doing of it to accomplish.
And sometimes there is a bitterness,
Between siblings who are raised by parents...
Who introduce to them early a strong work ethic,

[Hata Bildir]
