Credit - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

You want credit for my efforts?
That is no problem at all!

If it had not been for your lies
And backstabbing ways...
I doubt if I would have found
The motivation, desire and inspiration,
To lift my head up each day.

With your abilities to spread vicious gossip,
Involving my relatives and 'past' friends
I would not have achieved what I have done.
During those times I was alone,
And in emotional pain...
I have you to thank!
You are responsible,
For bringing God and me closer together!
You have no idea how much that excites me.

And now that my suffering and persistence,
To overcome what you intentionally have done...
To destroy me is behind me now,
I can rejoice that my faith is very strong!
You helped to usher into my life,
A complete confidence...
And peace of mind I now have!
No one can take that away!
I thank you.
And give you all the credit for it!
You have been an absolute blessing!

    What a wonderful way to view someone who has hurt us that much...I am now going to apply this to my own way of thinking, cause there have been times when I needed this! ! Scarlett (Report)Reply
