Lawrence S. Pertillar (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)
You're Getting Up And Out Of Here
One can choose to submit to pain,
Or get rid of it and insist...
It will not be a permanent affliction,
Waiting to visit to receive a gift of empathy.
Since a pain gained to leave,
Is the main objective for one not accepting it.
'I don't know where you will go.
And I have no suggestions or questions to ask.
But you're getting up and out of here.'
