It Takes A Celebration - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

It takes a celebration,
Everyday!
After one graduates,
With a determination to appreciate...
The value of a life lived.

With an erasing done of fear,
That separates an acknowledgement...
When a giving to take,
Does not mean heartbreak is a pre-requisite...
To usher one over the threshold to experience happiness.

Experiencing and going through circumstances,
With chances...
Sometimes may produce mistakes,
That awakens comprehension.
And understanding somehow clicks,
Without it being mentioned.

It takes a celebration,
Everyday!
After one graduates,
With a determination to appreciate...
The value of a life lived.

And this activity comes...
With no time to sit.
As if to nourish...
The flourishing of wisdom.
