What Is It That You 'Do'? - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Having an identity and keeping it real,
Is always interpreted as a false representation...
Amongst those who have never chosen,
To be themselves...
But a résumé to recite,
When being introduced to others.

'Oh,
Hello.
And what is it that you 'do'? '

~I live as a blessed and grateful human being.
Adventuring life and exploring my interests.
And you? ~

'Me?
I have a BA degree and I am working towards,
My Master's.
I am hoping one day to obtain my Doctorate's.'

~That's cool.
But.
What is it that you 'do'?
For you and others to share?
Other than try to be impressive?
What are your interests?
Other than confessing.
Pretentions to address.~
