Not To Preach But To Teach - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Trendsetters, go-getters and others,
Who seem born to take chances...
With limits to shatter,
As if consequences to pay...
Does not to them matter,
As to who perceives them to be...
Whomever, whatever or an 'it' if they please.

And with a determined certainty,
A living of their lives earned...
Not to preach but to teach,
They have experienced from lessons learned.
To do with a living regardless who critiques,
What is done they do or how and why!
These people seek no approval for lives sacrificed.
