It Is Not Up To Me - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I may introduce.
Sometimes I might 'conclude'.
It is not up to me,
To define 'your' comprehension.
Or clear a path,
To lay your steps.
I did not give you breath to breathe.
Nor will I judge,
What you decide for yourself to do next....
To please as you follow or lead.
Feeding as you digest!
As you acquire your own experiences.
Hopefully with choices made that do not perplex.
