Endure Through Opposition - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

What is it that time has allowed me to admit?
With an acknowledgement of it I could not deny,
Even if I wished and tried...
By using a bevy of creative excuses to make?
Only me, myself and 'I',
Accompanied by tears to cry and obstacles to face...
Have remained to be responsible and accountable,
For any actions I have made on the path I have taken.

And no one else will ever know this to this day,
Those sacrifices I have made with heartaches bestowed...
Without delaying it as I paved my way moving forward to go.
And not to assess my progress as being differently addressed,
But to say to anyone with dreams and wishes to see realized...
If success 'is' attempted be prepared to be committed,
Both mentally and physically to endure through opposition,
Positioned to discourage with an array of conflicts presented.

Endure through opposition if what is wanted is wished.
Endure through opposition no escape route is permitted.
Endure through opposition if what is wanted is wished.
Endure through opposition with a faith to pray...
And never to quit.
