With No Need To Keep It Questioned - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

If it is reached,
And one can keep it all.
That's not a selfishness.
Although successiveness is fetched.
And a success...
That is one,
Quite successful.

If it has been earned.
And that earning has been stalled...
It may upset,
The ones who have no patience left.

A success is success.
With no need to keep it questioned.

Getting up and falling down,
Determined to get off the ground...
Is a success.
That connects to what's successful.

Feeling that there's something owed,
Because that's what someone is told...
Isn't success.
Since tests will come to wrestle...
To undo and detach,
A happiness left.

Getting up and falling down,
Determined to get off the ground...
Is a success.
That connects to what's successful.

Feeling that there's something owed,
Because that's what someone is told...
Isn't success.
Since tests will come to wrestle...
To undo one's happiness.

If it has been earned.
And that earning has been stalled...
It may upset,
The ones who have no patience left.
But...
Success is success.
With no need to keep it questioned.
