Have It Near You To Visit - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Take this.

'And do what with it?
What is it? '

It is a piece of truth.
Someone gave a piece to me,
A long time ago.
And now I have plenty of it.
Growing in my front AND backyard.
Having it around,
Has also restored my inner peace.
It's incredible what truth can do.

Here.
Go ahead.
Take it.
Plant it.
And have it near you to visit as much as you like.

'Are you kidding?
And have my neighbors seeing me do that?
To attract that kind of attention to myself?
No.
You take it back.
I've got enough on my mind as it is.'
