Everytime I See This In Others - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Every time,
And I've noticed this.
Since you are the lesson taught,
I see in myself.
Everytime.

Every time,
There is an obstacle presented...
For you to overcome,
There you are looking...
For an easy way to go around it.
Instead of confronting it head on,
On a journey meant for you to undo them.

But stubbornly you don't want to do it.
You want to sit and make excuses.
Hoping someone will come along,
To convince you have been victimized...
By someone who wants to see you punished.
And of this you are right.
You are the biggest self abuser you have in your life.

Every time,
And I've noticed this.
Since you are the lesson taught,
I see in myself.
Everytime.

And everytime I see this in others,
I am immediately reminded of myself.
And so blessed I am to recognize it.
Everytime I see how much I have learned.
