On A Seesaw - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Some 'see'.
And then again,
Some prefer to disbelieve...
What it was they saw.
With a keeping kept thoughts,
To go unchallenged.

At a time I perceived,
A picking of the right relationship...
Could be balanced as if,
That perfect fit existed.
But without commiment...
To a sharing of those ups and downs,
Disappointment and conflicts...
Comes and someone decides to split.
Ending devotion with it to quit.

And on that seesaw,
No one attempts to find that right balance...
But decides for them it is better to get off!
Than to remain sustaining through those ups and downs,
To await for a happiness discovered to be found.
Not today when many are seeking another to keep them UP!
