Leaving Them To Speak For Themselves - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Being who one 'is',
Would be identified by consistency.
One would 'think'.
But today very few do!

Someone ever changing,
Can not make claims of being constant.
But then again...
Anyone can do and can say anything they wish.

However...
Those who seem to obtain another's confidence,
Always are the one's who are recognized...
For the repetition of their deeds.

Leaving them to speak for themselves.
