One's Task To Master - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
One's task to have it mastered.
Can seem an unending mission to pass.
Always there is a deeply felt feeling,
What one chooses to do...
Is not good enough to see it completed.
Nor seen to have exceeded,
A wish to want or even expect.
A craft to master.
On a path one takes to have it succeed.
Is not easy to do.
When one wishing to keep it updated.
Has sleepless nights.
Praying to God.
If what one does is being done right.
And even if success is achieved.
One too familiar,
With the routine of a task.
Is often the one to disbelieve,
How years to come has taken time to pass.
And a task to complete to achieve success.
Fleeting it was when it came and left.
To leave one who mastered it,
The last one to know...
When and how it was possible to happen.
Then to look away.
For something else to accomplish.
But this time giving it,
More undivided attention.
To keep each moment of it remembered.
And letting it go to know,
When the doing is complete.
