Regarded As Frivolous - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

The ability to acquire and purchase things,
Should not be the impetus...
That begins to establish one's self esteem.

Or that which stimulates an incentive wished,
Should not be the catalyst...
That provokes with a teaching,
The reason why anyone seen...
Appears with a feeling to be successful,
With talents and 'gifts'.

Since an integrity gained to maintain,
May come from one's awakening...
To finally recognize one's identity.
And that's it.
Everything else one has and obtains,
Maybe regarded as frivolous.
