Heard Shouting Their Doubts Out - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Efforts made to get something done,
By anyone making a transition...
From excuses made to take those steps,
Has already accomplished the unexpected.
Regardless of who may become upset,
To object to such audacity.

And those heard shouting their doubts out,
Amongst a crowd that is loud with faceless mouths...
May attempt to bring disgrace to the ones proving,
A moving ahead with a choice chosen to do 'something'...
Only sets the mood to continue with those efforts.
As they stand on the sidelines awaiting failure to entertain.

Efforts made today takes courage, pride and identity accepted.
Too many prefer to critique instead.
Efforts today takes a sacrificing of time to devote and not neglect.
With a sustained self-respect kept protected.
To detect and find a leaving behind complacency...
Has ultimately freed their minds,
From those defining themselves by labels...
To keep themselves within restricted limits,
Perceived to bring benefits...
Never to come with it done for them to receive.

And those heard shouting their doubts out,
Amongst a crowd that is loud with faceless mouths...
May attempt to bring disgrace to the ones proving,
A moving ahead with a choice chosen to do 'something'...
Only sets the mood to continue with those efforts.
As they stand on the sidelines awaiting failure to entertain.

Efforts made with chances to take,
Seldom awaits the arrival of failure to entertain.
Efforts made today takes courage, pride and identity accepted.
And...
Seldom are those efforts made to contemplate rejection,
While awaiting the arrival of failure to entertain.
