Adorned With The Doing Of Deeds - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

At a time it had been questioned,
If I knew what I was doing in my pursuits.
Or if the choices I made,
Best suited my abilities to undertake...
With a doing on a path unpaved,
And beset by obstacles...
That were certain to chase me away.

At a time it had been questioned,
If I knew what I was doing in my pursuits.
And today?
Those questions are no longer asked?
Today?
That path beset with obstacles and unpaved,
Have been adorned with the doing of deeds.

'Don't you think your admission,
Is a bit pretentious? '

Yes.
Of course I do.
In fact...
I had considered embellishing.
But reminiscing to even embellish the facts,
Of my reality...
I thought might be too painful.
So I settled for pretension to present,
My experiences primarily for sentimental value.
