Not As Easy As I Make It Look - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

If I have stated,
Without wavering from it!
That I...
With a consciousness given.
And with a mind I approve,
Am...
Me.

With a doing of me and no one else.
To the best of my ability.

Then why is it,
Those with their own insecurities...
Feel it is 'their' duty,
To convince me with their indignities...
That they are the ones,
I should try to understand! ?
With an attention given done.
Why?

I've got enough on my plate,
Creating my own innovative conversations.

And...
Answering some of those questions I ask myself,
Is not as easy as I make it look.

They have no idea,
Of the challenges and expectations,
I have set for myself to accept.
And the time I have given to this...
Can be mentally draining.
And physically exhausting.
Especially when I have those days,
I am fighting myself just to shut up and be quiet.

Not too many know how difficult a task that is!
