Be Proud Of Your Accomplishments - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

'Be proud of your accomplishments done.',
This I would say to anyone.
Too many sit prepared to criticize.
And despise an attention someone else gets.
As if they are owed,
To be spoiled, rude and obnoxious.
On top of believing they should be recognized,
For throwing their identified childish tantrums.

If people lived their lives,
With predetermined pre-requisites needed,
To comprehend they could not just sit...
Making demands.
Few would expect to receive entitlements,
Without first completing requirements...
Of knowing and having respect that's accepted.
'Accomplishments to be rewarded are earned.'
