Others Are So Resilient - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

There are those,
Who have made the riding of waves...
Through opposing winds appear to others brave.
And look to be as if a breeze and extremely easy.
Although they may be afraid of storms wherever they go,
Only they know what is felt and does not to others show.

While others are so resilient,
Yes!
They make it seem as if toiling through obstacles,
Had been a talent they had been born to do.
And to seem to recover unaffected too.
Like a pampered prized and nurtured rose.

And then there are those who seek attention,
When seasons change in known changing climates.
And clouds bestow upon them warm Summer rain.
While the expectations of Winter bring with it the falling of snow,
There are actually those who are heard sobbing,
As if to make any adjustments for them too unbearable.

Yes...
There are those who are so resilient...
They make it seem as if toiling through obstacles,
Had been a talent they had been born to do.
And to seem to recover emotionally unaffected too.
Like a pampered prized and nurtured rose.

And there are many who are heard crying constantly,
Hoping someone comes to help them off their knees...
From a temporary fall they want others to see.
To smother them with empathy.
And a silencing done of their pleas immediately.
As if to appease them like spoiled babies.
