Benefits I Was Close To Giving Away - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
I have learned not to turn away,
From a process taking place I may dislike.
I will sit biting my lips.
Or I might close my eyes,
To pretend I'll have none of it.
With it to discover my patience delivered,
An opportunity from the experience...
Came with benefits I was close to giving away,
To someone else.
And I have done this too many times,
With it to find 'something' eventually to appreciate.
'I noticed you nodding your head during the performance.'
~I was meditating.~
'Is it possible you can teach me how to do that? '
I'd be delighted.
You have interests in meditation? ~
'You have no idea,
How long I have been waiting...
For ways to appreciate these events.
Just as you have done.'
This is my business card.~
How To Tolerate The Most Boring Situations.
How you found this method successful? '
Not to brag.
But I did get your attention.
Give me a call.
I'm seeking assistants.
You'd be surprise by the clients I have,
Wanting to save their marriages.
And other kinds of relationships.~
By learning how to meditate? '
~That's part of it.
I teach how to attend events like this.~
'And I thought you were sleeping.'
~I also teach how to nod appropriately.~
