Kick It Out! - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Tired of being 'tired' and drained?
Keeping things the same...
With the hope of these things changing?
You can rearrange them in your mind.
And find that time to do it.
It's going to be even harder to go through it...
Again and again!
Only to find a comfort
That finds you more uncomfortable!

'Whatever' bothers you...
And you have allowed it to sit!
Get up off your butt...
And get rid of it quick!

You will be surprised,
Just how long you have lied to yourself!
Trapped and surrounded with excuses...
Snuggled up and close to you,
On your pillow!
Waiting for you to leave 'it' there...
Completely satisfied!

Get that leech out of your home,
And out of your heart and mind.
Kick it out!
And 'you' leave 'it' alone!
Close your door...
And leave it there behind to whine!
