Let It Now Be Mentioned - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

There's only one way to keep,
A focus with no joking...
Aimed to please.
Let it now be mentioned...
No chip on a shoulder holds,
One with a purpose who knows...
What it takes for a task to grasp,
And complete.

No vision with a dream can ever be schemed,
Or blocked to stop with obstacles dropped.
For reasons to demean with intention.

Let it now be mentioned...
People walking tall on their feet,
Are not weak.
Let it now be mentioned...
People with hopes and dreams,
Do not sit to weep in deepened grief.
Let in now be mentioned...
People with faith rarely wait.
To hesitate in debate.
OR,
Allow themselves to be chased,
By fear!
Let it now be mentioned...
People walking tall on their feet,
Are not weak.

There's only one way to keep,
A focus with no joking.
Or be provoked to be broken.
One with faith kept does not disbelieve.
Let it now be mentioned...
One with faith kept does not stay on knees.
Let it now be mentioned...
People who walk tall do it on two feet.

There's only one way to keep,
A focus with no joking.
Or be provoked to be broken.
One with faith kept does not disbelieve.
