Get Over Yourself - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

You are upset about something I said?
And the way I said it?
And you believe I should have used more tact?
But it is okay for you to say to me,
Anthing you like?
Even if it attacks?
I did not attack you at all...
Yet!
And what I said to you,
I have no regrets.

Have you noticed how many stars there are,
In 'this' Universe?
I suggest you get over yourself.
Before your 'light' dims.
There is just too much brightness,
To miss one dimming that goes out!
