For Purposes To Present

Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

With words selected and meant,
For purposes to present...
Can be thought to be an easy task,
For those who believe it to be.
But many doing it find no time to sleep or eat.

And others who take what's done for granted,
Would never consider the sacrifice and discipline...
It takes to accomplish this doing as if there is no end.
Since for them criticizing is much quicker to produce.
With a doing this in seconds without effort induced.

    Better to be read than unread?
    Even if taken for granted
    And told What seconds! ?
    It took me years to develop this bitterness.(Report)Reply
