Precisely - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

There are those who oppose your decisions made.
And say you do not operate with their best interests,
In your heart.
And others talk amongst themselves,
How they are not pleased.
And wish from them you would disappear,
To leave.

'This is for you and anyone who feels that way,
I stood up because I had something to say.
And what did the others do? '

They sat and watched quietly listening to you.

'Precisely!
I'm not the only who has these opportunities.
When opportunities knock...
I don't wait in hesitation to open the door.
Whatever the intention meant,
I am not one to deny myself the experience of it.
Tell that to your people you are here to represent.'

Could you do that?
I fear how they may react.
