Adjustments Are Not Easy - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Adjustments are not easy to welcome.
Especially when they arrive unexpectedly,
With no other choice but to have them done.
Adjustments immediately are rejected by everyone.

Everyone wants their comforts to be protected.
Everyone desires to have what they've accepted kept.
And everyone expects what they have to last forever.
Until forever comes too early and this creates regrets.

Adjustments are not easy to welcome.
When the doing of them is done by surprise.
Especially when they arrive unexpectedly,
And the doing of them are not hidden in disguise.

Life to experience delivers with it acceptance.
And a willingness to be more patient to comprehend,
That which life lived to experience brings...
An understanding that clears misunderstood things.

Although even with wisdom with a life lived one gets...
Adjustments are not easier to welcome,
With patience to comprehend one unprepared for them...
Pretends not to feel or express 'some' regret.

Adjustments are not easy to welcome.
When the doing of them is done by surprise.
Especially when they arrive unexpectedly,
And the doing of them are not hidden in disguise.

Only those adjustments that come to one to deny,
Are those adjustments one suffers through...
To fear that one's life to live,
Can not be done without each moment given an approval.
And adjustments when they come are seldom subtle at all.

Everyone wants their comforts to be protected.
Everyone desires to have what they've accepted kept.
And everyone expects what they have to last forever.
Until forever comes too early and this creates regrets.
