A Positive Expression - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Everytime I hear words of encouragement,
Whether to me spoken...
Or someone else to express.
I take this as an opportunity,
To expect more from myself to not let...
Being discouraged as a nourishment,
Left by others who have become negative.
With a doing to spread it to appease themselves.
As a punishment to fulfill their felt evils.

And my efforts to endeavor,
With sacrifice and faith invested...
Have been too long in the doing to recognize,
A positive expression to whomever it is addressed.
As also being mine.
And why not?

These times we live,
Are speeding away!
I am going to take and feed the increase,
Of my own happiness to achieve everyday.
Regardless if this is perceived as selfish.
Today I do the best I can to keep my positive mind.
And leave behind those identified to me,
As the ones on a mission to be wicked.
With a doing to take and purposely waste minds.
