Clip Those Claws To Toss - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Accept flaws as a cause.
And a purpose not a curse,
To self inflict abuse to thirst.

Accept blemishes as a definition.
To serve a specific meaning,
Not to allow a demeaning...
With a hiding away from any scene.

Clip those claws to toss off,
Any feelings heated...
Stirring within from an embittered fit.
Heard from lips wishing to witness this.
Knowing dirt blurted can make someone hurt.

Clip those claws to toss off.
Like beads of sweat,
That wets a brow dripping down to one's neck.
Wipe to dry.
Have no regrets...keep forward steps.

Accept flaws as a cause.
And a purpose not a curse,
To self inflict abuse to thirst.

Accept blemishes as a definition.
To serve a specific meaning,
Not to allow a demeaning...
With a hiding away from any scene.

Clip those claws to toss off,
Any feelings heated...
Stirring within from an embittered fit.
Heard from lips wishing to witness this.
Knowing dirt blurted can make someone hurt.
There is no need to scuttle in the mud with scum done.
