Living My Life - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

In the living my life,
I have arrived to feel free...
From the caring of who evaluates,
How the doing of it done...
Does not meet to achieve,
Expectations of others.

Of course,
The people who critique...
Have already assumed,
What it is 'they' do...
Satisfies me with an acceptance.

In the living of my life,
My sights are focused upon...
What it is I do.
And not what I could have done,
To prove a single thing to anyone.

Since no one has come forward to volunteer,
To pave my path with a making of it cleared...
From one obstacle I alone have had to remove.
And in the living of my life...
It has been with faith and belief of what I can do,
I have used to refuse all doubt.
That's what the living my life is about.
