Never Before - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I look not for ways,
To upgrade a paved road.
With a taking a blueprint,
As a device to use to re-invent...
That which shows.
Or become discourage to stop.
Then to get up and follow,
Whoever is on it traveling...
Wherever that one paved road,
Goes.

My eyes are focused and open wide,
With a seeking new adventures...
To face and replace the old to push aside,
Those challenges others may depict...
Most impossible.
And choose from them which to pick,
That eventually leaves me satisfied.
To give purpose and a meaning.
No one setting goals on a paved road,
Can do like I can to realize.

Fresh and innovative with no fear to pioneer,
Has not always been a role...
I wished to play with steps to take.
But my faith to test has kept effective.
And never before have I turned away from a door...
Too afraid to experience what it is.
Without leaving a contribution,
No one can dispute has been explored.

I look not for ways,
To upgrade a paved road.
With a taking a blueprint,
As a device to use to re-invent...
That which shows.
Or become discourage to stop.
Then to get up and follow,
Whoever is on it traveling...
Wherever that one paved road,
Goes.
