If You Are Up To The Challenge - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

No.
Do not do that to yourself.
Do not wish to live a life to please me,
Or others you desire to impress.
You will never be happy doing that.
Because I know for a fact,
If I understood my own moods...
You'd be bored to tears.
Knowing you had wasted your life,
Uselessly devoted to someone so predictable.

However,
I will say this...
With that said!
If you are up to the challenge,
And love adventure.
By all means,
You'd be ideal.
And the one I have been seeking.
Since neither one of us would know,
What each day to us would bring.
