Other Directions - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Those with creative proclivities,
Doing what they love.
And feeling blessed to be so pleased.
Are always seeking new challenges.
With a doing to leave some unimpressed,
By a turning their backs...
On a success left behind,
They might have earned to accomplish.
Others had discovered to mention 'and' address.
But those blessed to be creative,
Are seldom satisfied,
With that kind of attention to get.
However...
It is in the wanting to better oneself,
At a doing to do what one does...
To do something else with the same objective.
And in other directions to apply what one has.
Since one with creative proclivities can not rest,
Until what they've been blessed with...
Has been tested without being restricted to limits.
Or a success to leave behind,
Others define in 'their' minds.
