But I Was Never Alone - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I had to grow up,
Early.
There was no sheltered path,
Protecting steps...
I was made to correct.
By a sibling older...
I knew as I grew.

I had to grow up,
Early.
With a consciousness,
Of what to do.
And to face those consequences,
I lived to go through.

There were days of resentment.
There were days I spent alone.
There were days I wished,
For a childhood that was childish.

And today I am grateful,
For all of those experiences.
I learned through mistakes made,
And heartaches too.
I learned to listen,
With introspective comprehension.
My battles I fought.
And with time I recognized,
Those blessings to me God has brought!

I had to grow up,
Early.
With a consciousness,
Of what to do.
And to face those consequences,
I lived to go through.

But I was...
Never alone,
To be alone on my own.
And this to me,
God has shown.
