I Have Never Had That Need - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

If I was not an author with innovative thoughts,
On a mission to create my own compositions...
I 'suppose' I would be more motivated,
To solicit a need to read for inspiration.
With a doing like others to be approved.

I have never had that need nor can I perceive,
To follow behind those paving their own paths.
I did not awaken with a want to write.
I was born knowing what it was I should do.
To then listen to others who believed I could improve.

And do I listen to those who are critics?
Of course.
Do I wish I could appease everyone,
With a doing to permit my consciousness to limits?
No! I write. I have no aspirations to be a politician. None!

'I believe your statements made are too assumptive.'

Cool. Now prove to me what I have stated is not true.

'I can't do that.
I don't know you personally.'

So it is you who 'assumes' what I do is not authentic.
