People Will Deal With Emotions - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

What has been done to others to do,
Has been done...
To others to do.
With a doing to get over.
And...
What has been done to do,
Has been done to do.

Upset are the people left,
Doing their best to catch their breath.
And...
Upset are the people who choose,
To stay where they are with excuses to use.
Yet...
A people will deal with emotions they can't remove,
Until they are over.
And with a given to them,
Until they come to an end.
People will deal with emotions they can't remove.

What has been done to others to do,
Has been done...
To others to do.
With a doing to get over.
And...
What has been done to do,
Has been done to do.

Although upset are the people left,
Doing their best to catch their breath.
But a people will deal with emotions they can't remove.
With a given to them until they come to an end.
A people will deal with emotions they can't remove.
Until they heal from them to be mended.
And for them when this moment begins...
People will deal with emotions they can't remove.

Until they feel they have mended,
And with a knowing of them to have ended...
People will keep their emotions.
Some to the depths of oceans.
People will deal with emotions until they move.
With a going away and not before that day,
People will deal with emotions as they choose.
