And...The Winner Is - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Many times those with good intentions,
Are better off just to leave them 'intended'.
You know...
Keep the idea of it 'wanted'.
But not to flaunt.
Since often those good intentions once done,
Will never satisfy with an appreciation mentioned...
Seldom to come from anyone.

And some may become offended. Oh, yes!
By beliefs those intentions to do and with innocence,
Were done just to get an attention meant.
To leave that attention suspected,
One wishes to receive with a getting as detected...
An opportunity for those with good intentions,
To abort any feelings of making these attempts again.
Why offer to sacrifice a limb if one's hand is being bitten?

And...
The winner is,
The one who forgives and forgets...
With a keeping of a peace of mind left to be reminded,
To leave behind those conflicted with a preference to accept,
A love for an ignorance with no exceptions to regret.
Especially by those,
With druthers to begrudge the doings of others.
