Let Them Be - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Those who DON'T care about themselves,
Just let-them-be.
Let them be.

Yes...
Those who DON'T respect themselves or anyone,
Just let them be.
Let-them-be.

If they have a life of foolishness,
And this is all they've ever known 'and' accepted....
Show them you are serious about your life,
And...
Let them be.
Just let them be.

Those who DON'T care about themselves or ever have,
Just let-them-be.
Let them be.

Those who DON'T respect themselves or anybody,
Just...
Let them be.
Let-them-be.

If they have a life of foolishness...
Don't expect no more from them,
You will not get it.
A fool will only wish for more foolishness,
So let-them-be.
Let them be.
YES...
A fool will only wish for more foolishness,
So let-them-be.
LET THEM BE!

I said...
A fool will only be a fool to see,
So let the fool be.
Let-Them-Be.
