Has It Been Noticed - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Has it been noticed...
Egotistic people with kept egos,
Seldom seem to be at peace.
And,
Has it been noticed...
Egotistic people with their egos,
Selfishly say they succeed.
Since,
People with kept egos want it known...
That,
Alone by themselves...
They have achieved.

Has it been noticed,
Those behind the scenes are not mentioned...
By the ones climbing to the top.
Has this been noticed,
When those of egos begin to slip...
They are blaming others because of it.

Has it been noticed,
Those with criticisms in their vision...
Are the same people who offend,
Others who have spent their time giving...
To not have the truth heard,
Who pretends.

Has it been noticed...
Egotistic people with kept egos,
Seldom seem to be at peace.
And,
Has it been noticed...
Egotistic people with their egos,
Selfishly say they succeed.

Has it been noticed,
Those with criticisms in their vision...
Are the same people who offend,
Others who have spent their time giving...
To not have the truth heard,
Who pretends.

Has it been noticed,
Egotistic people with kept egos...
Make excuses for their flops.
Has this been noticed,
Egotistic people with kept egos...
Often learn too late,
For lessons to start...
To leave their egos.
