Instead Of Cursing With Words - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

To be different is a positive,
That should be emphasized...
In our children's lives.

The children of today,
Need things heard supported...
By what we do,
And what they hear us say.
Instead of cursing them with words.
That stick in their minds...
And with them stay,
To never go away.

To be different is a positive,
That rarely drifts into obscrurity.
What may be considered,
As an oddity at first...
Often remains,
And becomes someone's quoted verse.

And sometimes what is repeated in greetings,
Brings a smile when done on another's face.
Whether intentionally practiced to erase a frown.
Or spoken to lift them up from their troubles...
When a feeling isolates them,
To believe the entire 'world' has let them down.
